About the Opera:
Long before there was sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll, there was Carmen. A seductive and dangerous gypsy, Carmen captures the heart of the soldier Don José, who’s all-consuming jealousy may be her ruin.  You've heard the opera’s iconic “Habanera” aria sung by artists as varied as Beyoncé, Maria Callas, and the Muppets.

*Please note: This production contains violence, nudity and suggestive behavior. Parental discretion advised.
