Breathtaking…“an over-the-top display of eye-popping color.”—Houstonia Magazine
Long ago, two men fall in love with a priestess—then swear to give her up for the sake of their friendship. But they don’t! One man makes her forget her vows and the other loses his life in this torrid tale of forbidden love and treachery. Gloriously romantic music from Carmen’s composer, including the famous “friendship” duet, the sensuous soprano aria, and the tenor showpiece Caruso made famous.
With stars including:
Joyce El-Khoury as Leïla. The embodiment of a prima donna, her portrayals “are intense and commanding…and the voice has an innate beauty.” —OperaWire
René Barbera as Nadir. From clarion high notes to ringing delicacy and nuance, here is a tenor who has it all—wowing audiences at major houses including La Scala!
Morris Robinson as Nourabad. Dallas audiences love this galvanizing artist and his “gorgeously rich and sepulchral bass.” —The Washington Post
Alfredo Daza as Zurga. In his Dallas debut, audiences will fall for his “irresistible lyric sweetness” —LA Times
