Venture Opera presents director Bernard Uzan's innovative production of Bizet's Carmen where the heart of the traditional story is heightened by modern staging and amplified realism of Bizet's characters. Kirstin Chàvez stars as "the Carmen of a lifetime" (Opera News).
Projections designed by Mr. Uzan and Michael Baumgarten will take us into the minds of the characters as well as set a vivid backdrop for this classic story. Carmen, Don José, and Escamillo, their friends and foes, will be brought to life by Carmine Aufiero conducting a 27-piece orchestra.
