Carmen - Part II
Opera’s ultimate temptress opens the season with a sizzle in this classic production that transports you to sultry Seville. The story of a beguiling gypsy who sets her sights on a naïve but passionate young corporal, Carmen traces a tale of seduction, obsession, and deadly betrayal. Bizet’s masterpiece features many of opera’s most powerful melodies, from the bewitching “Habanera,” to the passionate “Seguidilla,” and the bravura of the “Toreador” song, capturing the imagination from the first notes of its renowned overture.
Hosted by OCP's Director of Community Programs Michael Bolton, this edition of In Tune with the Opera Company of Philadelphia features interviews with Carmen cast members Rinat Shaham, David Pomeroy and Ailyn Pérez and provides in depth information about the Company's free public HD screen simulcast of Bizet's opera at Independence Mall in the Independence National Historical Park.
