La Tragedie de Carmen
BY GEORGES BIZET
RE-IMAGINED BY PETER BROOK
FREEDE LITTLE THEATRE
CIVIC CENTER MUSIC HALL
One of opera’s most enthralling characters comes to life in this intense 90 minute re-interpretation of opera’s most loved show. Pared down to four singers, the opera follows Carmen as she draws the infatuated Don Jose away from his love Micaela and toward a life of jealousy, lust, and murder. Featuring many of the immensely popular melodies of Bizet’s original version, La Tragedie de Carmen trims this powerful story into a taut and fast-paced “tragedy of four people” that brims with seduction and intrigue as it moves towards its inevitable conclusion.
