Atlanta Opera presents "Carmen"

Bizet’s opera, adapted from Prosper Mérimée’s nineteenth-century novella of the same title, introduces us to Carmen, a beautiful and free-spirited gypsy and the ultimate femme fatale. When the naive Don Jose falls for her, he falls hard into a dangerous obsession, breaking up with his childhood sweetheart and abandoning the military. But the reckless Carmen cannot be tamed, and she grows weary of Don Jose once she meets the glamorous toreador, Escamillo. This messy love triangle won’t end well.

Brenna Corner directs this new Atlanta Opera production, conducted by Music Director Arthur Fagen. Franco-Armenian Mezzo-soprano Varduhi Abrahamyan makes her company and U.S. debut in the title role, and tenor Gianluca Terranova returns to Atlanta in the role of Don Jose. Baritone Edward Parks is Escamillo, the bullfighter, and Nicole Cabell returns to The Atlanta Opera as the spurned Micaëla.

Performed in French with English supertitles
