    Carmen

    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.

    Time 7:30pm

    Composing Conversations with Mark Adamo

    Wondering if you can still attend, the answer is YES! RSVP's are only requested, not required to attend. We hope to see you tonight.

    The Dallas Opera is proud to collaborate with the Nasher Sculpture Center to bring you the next edition of “Composing Conversations.” “Composing Conversations” is an ongoing discussions series featuring some of our most noteworthy and internationally acclaimed composers. Past participants have included composers Tod Machover, Jennifer Higdon, Joby Talbot and Dominick Argento. This series is designed to put you face-to-face with some of the greatest talents at work in the opera world today, as they discuss recent and upcoming projects.

    Join us at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Nasher Hall for an intimate conversation with American Composer Mark Adamo, who recently completed an epic and controversial new opera, The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, for San Francisco Opera and a double flute concerto for James Galway, in addition to revising seven scores for an upcoming recording of his complete choral catalogue. Mr. Adamo is also hard at work on a new chamber piece for Thomas Hampson and the Jupiter String Quartet.

    Since its successful 1998 world premiere by Houston Grand Opera, Little Women, Adamo’s first opera for which he composed both music and libretto, has been nationally telecast on the PBS series Great Performances, released on CD by Ondine Records, and heard in more than seventy-five national and international engagements in New York, Mexico City, Minneapolis, Tel Aviv, Calgary, Los Angeles, Bruges, Adelaide, and Tokyo.

    Chatting with Mr. Adamo will be Chief Classical Music and Opera Critic for the performing arts Website Theater Jones Gregory Sullivan Isaacs. They will be discussing all aspects of Mr. Adamo's career, as well as his ideas about music, drama and theater.

    Be sure to RSVP today for this unique opportunity that is completely free and open to the public.
