Carmen New Wording NO QR code WEB.jpg

Set in the dusty, white-hot countryside of Seville, Spain, Carmen has been a perennial favorite of opera audiences for over a century. With a seductive, atmospheric score as irresistible as Carmen herself, Bizet’s final and most celebrated opera features the iconic melodies of the “Habanera” and “Toreador Song.” It is the story of Don José, a man perpetually running from his demons, and Carmen, the free-spirited woman whose heart he will never possess. 


Our all-new production returns to the original novella in which Carmen first appeared for its inspiration. This Carmen is no victim of her own freedom and independence, but a woman whose fate is sealed the day she finds herself caught in the toxic gaze of Don José - a man who abandons both the church and the military. Quick and lethal as the flash of a bullfighter’s red cape, José’s passion for Carmen soon turns to jealousy and obsession. From the first notes of its iconic overture to its jaw-dropping final scene, this is a Carmen not to be missed!

Fully staged performances with piano accompaniment.

Carmen will be set in the original 1820s to 1850s period and sung in the original French with English supertitles.
