    Carmen - Opening Night of the Season

    By Georges Bizet | Sung in French with English Supertitles

    She’s the woman no man can resist and, as performed by mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine in her American debut, who would want to say non? Hailed as “Best Newcomer” in the 2011 French Classical Music Awards, Margaine will have her hands full with two head-turning, heart-melting Don José. This production conducted by Emmanuel Villaume and directed by Chris Alexander will make all the other good/bad girls of opera seem tame, if not lame, in comparison.

    Don’t miss our first Carmen in the Winspear Opera House — because, unlike our tempestuous title character, you may live to regret it.
