She’s every man’s nightmare and every man’s dream.
Carmen, the seductive cigarette girl from Seville, gets any man she wants and now it’s the hapless soldier Don José. He gives up everything to be with her—his fiancée, his morals, and even his mother! The lovers revel in passion—until Carmen meets a famous matador. Then, she dumps Don José to be with her newest conquest. But this time, Carmen has finally and fatally pushed a man too far…
The Toreador Song…The Habanera…Seguidilla…the Flower Song…the Card Song and more. No opera boasts more famous melodies than this thrilling Bizet masterpiece.
Seen in the famous Glyndebourne production that had its American opera premiere at TDO in 2018.
