By Georges Bizet
Bizet’s sexy thriller about an everyday soldier’s ill-fated obsession with the ultimate femme fatale is arguably the world’s most popular opera. Featuring an unrivaled procession of familiar melodies, Bizet’s lavish score brims with brilliant orchestration. Moving like a runaway train from its rousing, iconic overture to the shocking, tour-de-force finale, Carmen packs all the vibrancy and volatility of a bullfight into an irresistible theatrical event.

Renowned British director Paul Curran has garnered high praise for helming dozens of innovative productions on both sides of the Atlantic. He teams with frequent collaborator Gary McCann to create an imposing and dynamic theatrical arena inhabited by a multitude of factory girls, townsfolk, smugglers, soldiers, and toreadors.

In French with English Subtitles 
Approximate Running Time: 3 hours, 30 minutes, with 2 intermissions
