Austin Opera presents Carmen

November 11 - November 19, 2017 — Austin, TX

Carmen. It also contains some of its most beloved and well known music, including the “Toreador Song” and the “Habanera.”

A new, gritty, and mesmerizing production places the classic story of love, betrayal, and ultimately death, in the 1970s. Mezzo-soprano Sandra Piques Eddy, praised for her “dark, sensuous mezzo and charming stage presence” (Opera Magazine), stars in the provocatively alluring title role alongside tenor Chad Shelton, the naïve soldier who succumbs to her advances to tragic end. Baritone Norman Garrett will storm the stage in his Austin Opera debut as the Toreador, Escamillo.
