Carmen is an opera by the French composer Georges Bizet. The opera was first performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris, on 3 March 1875, and has now come to the Kravis Center thanks to the Palm Beach Opera.
What’s Carmen all about? The steamy performance begins as wild Carmen seduces naïve soldier Don José. His innocence quickly turns as Carmen’s manipulations bring out the very worst in him. Intensely passionate melodies performed by world-class singers bring the desire and madness from the stage directly into your heart. Enter the uninhibited world of Carmen from racy beginning to jaw-dropping end. Ignite your night with opera’s bad girl. The performance is sung in French with English supertitles projected above the stage.
