Event Summary: The must-see event of the Fall Season! Boston Lyric Opera's 40th Anniversary Season launches with Calixto Bieito's provocative, groundbreaking production of Bizet’s Carmen, bringing opera back to Boston Opera House.
Event Description Music by Georges Bizet Libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy
A co-production with Boston Lyric Opera and San Francisco Opera Sung in French with English supertitles
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.
Jennifer Johnson Cano, critically acclaimed for her star turn in BLO’s 2015 production of Don Giovanni, returns to Boston as the fiery, seductive gypsy who destroys the naïve soldier Don José, played by Roger Honeywell. Michael Mayes and Chelsea Basler return to BLO, and BLO Music Director David Angus conducts.
