Why See Pittsburgh Opera: Carmen?

Classical & Opera

Passion and fury

Beautiful, passionate and intense, Carmen is the belle of Seville, leaving a trail of broken hearts in her wake. To lover her is to flirt with danger as her fitful feelings can sway in an instant. Bizet's sensational heroine returns to the stage. This is one fiery temptress not be missed!

In the blaze of the Spanish heat in 19th Century Seville, Carmen is the provocative Gyspy woman, whose short temper brings her to the attention of the kind and charismatic Don Jose, who falls head over heels in love with her much to the chagrin of Micheala, the girl who has pegged him for her heart. Unperturbed by a short prison sentence at the fault of Carmen, Don Jose is freed and finds her with a gang of smugglers, and a charming new suitor, Escamillo. An intense tale of love found and ruthlessly taken, how will Jose cope with this new development.

Bizet's piece has been mesmerizing audiences since it first premiered in 1875 and is one of today's most often performed operatic works, highly regarded for its harmony and melody.
