Passionate music tells the story of a dazzling gypsy seductress and the Spanish soldier she bewitches into a life of crime. Drawn magnetically to this femme fatale and mistaking her flirtation for true love, he forsakes all. Carmen’s fickle heart and his obsessive jealousy ultimately seal her fate!
Starring Audrey Babcock, one of America’s leading Carmens, and Zulimar López-Hernández, who won the hearts of Knoxville audiences in
Romeo and Juliette.
Performed in French with projected English translations
