The Tragedy of Carmen

  • Red Mountain Theatre Cabaret 301 19th Street North Birmingham, AL, 35203 United States

Sung in French with projected English translations

The gypsy Carmen is a sexy temptress, drawing the eye of the naïve Don José. When she leaves him for the bullfighter Escamillo, jealousy ignites and threatens to burn them all. Peter Brook’s gripping adaptation of Bizet’s Carmen distills the drama into an intense one-act chamber opera.
