CARMEN – In the Badlands
Saturday, August 4, 2018

Set in Seville during the 1800s, Carmen tells the tragic story of the eponymous gypsy and the soldier she convinces to let her escape prison. Bizet’s most successful opera Carmen, with its exotic Spanish setting and sordid love triangle, introduced a style of realism in opera that changed the theatre forever, and remains just as potent and relevant today. Carmen is one of the most beloved and often produced operas in the world.
