No opera is more requested. No opera is so anticipated. And no opera is more beloved than Carmen! Carmen, the fiery gypsy cigarette girl, gets any man she wants—and then gets rid of him when a better one comes along. When she sets her sights on Corporal Don José, he doesn’t stand a chance. He’s smitten and gives up everything—his career, his mother, even the girl he’s going to marry—to be with the sultry siren. For a while, they revel in passion. But then Carmen meets a famous matador and dumps Don José in a heartbeat. This time, though, she has finally pushed a man too far! Join us for this traditional presentation filled with characters you’ll love and music you’ll never forget.
Each program is accompanied by a pre-show lecture an hour before curtain with a talk-back session immediately following the performance.
