Spanish gypsies, strapping bullfighters, and the masterfully seductive music of Bizet make for one of the most stunning (and steamiest!) operas ever written. There’s no wonder CARMEN is one of the most often performed and beloved operas in all of the world. Don José, a young soldier, has his life planned out: he has a solid career in the military, he’ll marry his innocent hometown sweetheart, everything in perfect order. But then he meets Carmen. The sensual tale of a free-spirited untamable gypsy girl, CARMEN seethes with passion, emotion, and desire. Bizet’s stunning music paints the days of Spanish heat—and the nights of fiery passion—with an all-consuming fever that cannot be ignored. Be seduced.
Sung in French with projected English translations
