Bizet’s Carmen has been called one of the greatest operas of all time, and it’s easy to understand why. This opera has everything—spectacular staging, passionate characterizations, emotion-laden performances, lush orchestrations, and memorable melodies. Even if you don’t know the opera, you’ll recognize the tunes, as well as the emotions, and leave the theater with a lump in your throat and a song in your heart.
This production includes local performers you know and love as well as singers who are known nationally and internationally.
Don’t miss the entertaining and informative pre-show talk by Hillari DeSchane, Opera Modesto board member and opera aficionado, and Ryan Murray, Opera Modesto’s renowned conductor. The pre-show talk is in the theater one hour prior to the show and is a “must” for those new to opera, as well as experienced opera-goers.
