Opera by George Bizet. Libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halevy
Captivating and capricious, this re-envisioned Carmen fills the stage with the heat and passions along the US/Mexican border. Called a "hit parade of opera's most intoxicating melodies", this riveting tale of love and jealousy was Bizet's final work, breaking barriers and paving the way for a whole, new realistic form of opera. Directed by Maurice Godin, Musical director John Roscigno.
