We conclude Opera Colorado’s grandest season to date with Bizet’s smoldering drama, Carmen, filled with some of opera’s most iconic melodies—including Carmen’s “Habanera” and the rousing Toreador song. Not a soul can resist Carmen’s seductive charm, not even the naïve Don Jose. But when she leaves him for a charismatic bullfighter, Don Jose’s infatuation turns obsessive. What fate, or choice, waits for the woman no man can tame?
FOUR DECADES OF SONGS & STORIES
Welcome to Opera Colorado’s 40th Anniversary Season. Our biggest season yet opens with a one-night-only, semi-staged concert performance of Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana. Then, our mainstage season kicks off with a much-beloved classic, Verdi’s Rigoletto. We continue the season with a brand-new production of Korngold’s Die tote Stadt. Finally, our season closes with a spectacular production of Puccini’s Turandot.
