carmenJoin the Scholars Program for an excursion to see Boston Lyric Opera's performance of Carmen. This production of Carmen, a partnership between the BLO and San Francisco Opera, will mark the BLO's return to the Opera House. Additionally, this production of Carmen comes as a new version of Spanish director Calixto Bieito's famously provocative production. Described as "rough-edged" and "startlingly insightful," Carmen paved the way for "verismo opera."

From the BLO website:

BLO’s 40th Anniversary Season launches with the bicoastal American premiere of Calixto Bieito’s Carmen in a co-production with San Francisco Opera – marking the director’s long-awaited U.S. opera debut. Set in the arid earthiness of 1970’s post-Franco Spanish North Africa, this raw and cinematic vision is a powerful account of the defiantly free-spirited woman and her obsessive lover, set to Bizet’s intoxicating score.
