Opera Colorado’s grandest season to date concludes 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?
