Carmen–The Gypsy

An alluring gypsy. A handsome officer. The world’s most fiery love story, told to some of opera’s favorite music. Come to Lillas Pastia’s gypsy tavern where Carmen’s story is imaginatively retold to the pulsations of flamenco guitar and dance. Intimate. Irresistible.

Two versions: high octane for the evening shows, child-friendly for the matinee.
