I like this venue. They just had the AC turned up a bit high but the sound was decent and the set and performances were good.

Description

Carmen, a sensuous gypsy in 1870s Seville, lives in the moment, and her zest for life makes men flock to her. Don José, a soldier, is no exception. Falling madly in love with Carmen, he abandons his first love, neglects his mother, becomes a deserter and joins Carmen and the gypsy smugglers. But Carmen soon loses interest in him, and rejects him in favor of Escamillo, the bullfighter. Desperately jealous, Don José kills her.

Sung in French with English supertitles.
