Don Jose, a young soldier, has his life planned out. He’ll have a solid career in the military; he’ll marry his hometown sweetheart...everything in order. But then he meets...CARMEN. Considered by many to be the most popular opera ever written, the sensual tale of Carmen, the free-spirited, passionate girl, is a work teaming with excitement, emotion, and desire. Bizet’s stunning and beautiful music paints the days of desert heat, and the nights of fiery passion with an all-consuming fever that cannot be ignored.
