Why See Lyric Opera of Chicago: Carmen?

Love her at your own risk

Don't miss Bizet's timeless, sultry masterpiece, in this new-to-Chicago production that first premiered at the Houston Grand Opera. With a libretto by Henry Meilhac and Ludovic Halevy, Carmen first premiered in Paris in 1875 and has come to be regarded as one of the art form's greatest achievements. The ultimate tale of the femme fatale and how her ruthless behaviour leads those around her astray, including the quiet, sensible Don Jose, who finds himself drawn to the seductive but fatally dangerous beauty...

BEWARE THE ATTENTIONS OF CARMEN

Carmen is a provocative Gyspy woman, whose short temper brings her to the attention of the kind and charismatic Don Jose, who falls head over heels in love with her. An intense tale of love found and ruthlessly taken, Carmen is one of Opera's most intense and passionate pieces, as lust and revenge go hand in hand making for a fiery finale.
