La tragédie de Carmen
By Peter Brook & George Bizet
One of opera’s most enthralling characters comes to life in this intense 90-minute re-interpretation of the classic and timeless Carmen. Pared down to four singers, the opera follows Carmen as she draws the infatuated Don Jose away from Micaela and toward a life of jealousy, lust, and murder. Featuring many of the immensely popular melodies of Bizet’s original version, La Tragédie 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.
