Event Details

The fiercely independent Carmen becomes ensnared in a high-stakes game among garrison soldiers, smugglers, and a superstar bullfighter in Bizet’s blockbuster opera. The COC’s classic production transports audiences to a sun-drenched setting of bustling street scenes and outlaw hideaways, with a dramatic climax that crackles with electricity.
