Two tickets to the Pittsburgh Opera Production of "Carmen" by Georges Bizet on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at 7:00 pm. The performance will be held at the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts.
Set in 1830 Seville, Spain, Carmen is a roller-coaster of lust, deception and murder. Fiery gypsy Carmen, who lives her life to the fullest, can have any man she wants. But when she seduces naïve Corporal Don José, she gets more than she bargains for.
Carmen works in a cigarette factory. When a knife fight with another employee leads to her arrest, she charms Corporal Don José into letting her escape. Like a moth drawn to a flame, Don José forsakes his military career and the innocent peasant girl Micaela for a life on the lam with Carmen and a band of smugglers. Never one to settle down, the passionate Carmen gets bored with Don José and becomes involved with the glamourous, testosterone-filled bullfighter Escamillo. Left with nothing, Don José decides that if he can’t have Carmen, no one can.
Full of magnetic melodies, colorful costumes, and tragic twists, you’ll fall in love with George Bizet’s one-and-only Carmen.
Timothy Myers conducts. Garnett Bruce directs.
