Teatro Lirico D’Europa Presents G.Bizet’s CARMEN
Featuring a cast of 65 with live orchestra, chorus in French with English Subtitles
Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 8pm, Tickets: $55/45
Georges Bizet’s Carmen premiered in Paris in 1875. Two characters are at the center: Carmen who demands her freedom at any cost, and her lover Don José. He starts out as a respectable soldier, but obsessive love turns him into a lawbreaker, an outcast, and finally, a killer.
Micaela is in love with the soldier, Don Jose, and she expects to marry him. Jose loves her too, but is dazzled by the more exotic charms of the Gypsy, Carmen. He goes to jail because he has let Carmen escape after she started a fight. Meanwhile, Carmen has fallen in love with a bullfighter, Escamillo. When she refused to return to Jose, he kills her. Georges Bizet wrote several operas, but Carmen is far and away the most successful.
Don’t miss the magnificent music of Bizet brought to vivid vocal and orchestral life, for one night only at The Sunrise Theatre.
