Georges Bizet’s masterpiece Carmen, the world’s most popular opera, will be performed live on the Axelrod stage by a professional cast of up-and-coming opera singers, directed by Andrea DelGuidice with orchestra conducted by Jason Tramm. Performed in French, with English supertitles, the opera has a libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy, based on the novella by Prosper Mérimée, about the fiery love triangle and tragedy of the gypsy girl Carmen, Corporeal Don José and the matador Escamillo. The immortal score, bursting with exciting Spanish-inflected rhythms and some of opera’s greatest tunes, includes such favorites as “Habanera,” “The Toreador Song,” and the “Flower Song.”
