Boston Opera Collaborative presents La Tragédie de Carmen, a Peter Brook adaptation of Bizet’s classic Carmen. In this powerful and seductive 90-minute re-interpretation, Brook brings the original's immensely popular and melodic favorites and trims the story to a taut and fast-paced tragedy of four people.
The opera is a mesmerizing tale following Carmen, a seductive enchantress who casts her spell on the young, naive soldier, Don José. He then falls head over heels for her, abandoning his childhood love, Micaëla. As Carmen's hold on Don José strengthens, his once honorable life is consumed by a whirlwind of passion, jealousy, and, ultimately, murder. The intricate plot, rich with emotion and drama, leaves audiences spellbound and dazzled as the tragic consequences of Don José's obsession with Carmen unfold before our very eyes.
The performances will occur at Arrow Street Arts in Cambridge, formally home of the American Repertory Theater's Oberon Theater. We will be the first opera (and first performance!) produced in their officially opened space.
La Tragédie de Carmen features a 15-piece chamber orchestra led by our new Music Director, Ken Yanagisawa, stage direction by Alexandra Deitrich, and the talents of Boston's up-and-coming emerging artists.
