Toledo Opera presents Carmen

March 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 2:00 pm, repeating until March 10, 2019

The composer Georges Bizet would also embrace a form of opera that incorporated spoken dialogue for his iconic Carmen. Written a little over a century after The Magic Flute, Carmen continues to be one of the most beloved and performed operas. Arias like Habanera and The Toreador Song are at once familiar, but also fascinating to see in their original context. The audience witnesses the “cigarette girl” Carmen’s full range of emotion–savage fierceness, beguiling sensuality and tragic indifference. The soldier Don José and Carmen have a relationship that is, well, complicated. Is Carmen a feminist hero? A victim without freedom?
