Presented By Painted Sky Opera

By Georges Bizet
Re-Imagined by Peter Brook

One of opera’s most enthralling characters comes to life in this intense 90 minute re-interpretation of opera’s most loved show.  Pared down to four singers, the opera follows Carmen as she draws the infatuated Don Jose away from his love Micaela and toward a life of jealousy, lust, and murder.   Featuring many of the immensely popular melodies of Bizet’s original version, La Tragedie de Carmen trims this powerful story into a taut and fast-paced “tragedy of four people” that brims with seduction and intrigue as it moves towards its inevitable conclusion. 

La Tragedie de Carmen marks the return of tenor Joel Burcham to the Painted Sky Opera stage since our October 2018 production of Tosca

Presented with orchestra in French with English supertitles.
