SYNOPSIS

 

Music by Georges Bizet | Libretto by Henri Meilhac & Ludovic Halévy

Among the most famous and performed of all operas, Carmen is a riveting story of love, lust, betrayal, jealousy and murder. Set in 1830s Seville, the gypsy girl Carmen seduces soldier Don José away from his post and his beloved Micaëla. After luring him to join her and a clan of smugglers, Carmen turns her attention toward the swaggering bullfighter Escamillo. Carmen's fate is met in the final act when she meets the madly jealous Don José outside of the arena. The outdoor ruins of the Mill City Opera offer a magical setting to experience this iconic masterpiece.
