Sultry, bold, daring. When affection turns to obsession, romance becomes dangerous. Carmen, an iconic and beautiful woman, is bound to live life on her own terms.

Featuring some of the most popular music to ever grace the opera stage, Minnesota Opera’s Carmen brings every aspect of Bizet’s thrilling tale to life, from its tantalizing beginning to its devastating climax.
Sung in French with English translations.
