Bizet/Meilhac & Halévy
Passions flare in Georges Bizet’s timeless story of seduction, secret trysts and jealous lovers. A gypsy woman who heeds no law but her own, the fiery Carmen is caught in a love triangle with an army corporal and a toreador. Bizet’s masterful score is one of the most popular operas in the repertory – and with good reason. Since its premiere in 1875, Bizet’s dramatic masterpiece has played to critical acclaim for more than a century.
