Carmen is a beautiful and free-spirited gypsy who makes men melt. When the naive Don Jose falls for her, he falls hard into a dangerous obsession, breaking up with his childhood sweetheart and abandoning the military. But the reckless Carmen cannot be tamed, and she grows weary of Don Jose once she meets the glamorous toreador, Escamillo. This messy love triangle won’t end well.
Studio Artist Brenna Corner* will direct, and Music Director Arthur Fagen will conduct. Mezzo-soprano Zanda Švēde makes her company debut in the title role, and tenor Gianluca Terranova returns to Atlanta in the role of Don Jose. Baritone Edward Parks is Escamillo, the bullfighter.
