Get there in plenty of time to park. It's a slow process, putting all those cars under ground.

Description

Bizet’s sizzling opera springs to vivid life in this production that originated at Madrid’s Teatro Real. French conductor Emmanuel Villaume, Spoleto Festival USA’s Music Director for Opera and Orchestra, returns to lead a magnificent production originally created by Emilio Sagi for the Teatro Real.

Spanish mezzo-soprano Nancy Fabiola Herrera makes her Company debut as Carmen, a signature role she has sung recently at Covent Garden and at The Met. Tenor German Villar takes the part of the obsessive and self-destructive Don José. Sabina Cvilak makes her Company debut as Micaëla. Acclaimed bass Raymond Aceto takes the role of Escamillo.
