Sultry, bold, daring — when affection turns to obsession, romance becomes dangerous. Carmen, an iconic and beautiful woman, is bound to live life on her terms. But shortly after a corporal falls for her, what begins as a passionate story of desire quickly turns into a struggle for liberation. Featuring some of the most popular music ever to grace the opera stage, Minnesota Opera’s Carmen brings every aspect of Bizet’s thrilling tale to life, from its tantalizing beginning to its devastating climax. Listen to audio from YourClassical MPR’s recent broadcast now.
