About the Event

Fueled by reckless passion, and insatiable desire, Seville’s hottest woman has one creed: to live, and die free. The fire is lit when she meets Don José, an army corporal promised to Micaëla. Escamillo enters the scene and is quickly smitten by Carmen’s charm. She shifts her affection to the bullfighter, which makes the fire in Don José burn more fiercely – he will stop at nothing to win her back. With her gypsy friends reading the tarot Carmen keeps drawing the Death card, she knows she can not cheat fate, but resolves to defy it anyway. 

Join us for a stunning production of this timeless tale of love, obsession, fate, and the ultimate femme fatale.
