About the Show
Inspired by an 1830 trip to Spain, Prosper Mérimée wrote a novel about the fiery gypsy, Carmen, her soldier lover, and their doomed love affair. Forty years later, that novel inspired composer Georges Bizet to create what may be the world’s most popular opera, Carmen. Nearly one hundred years after Carmen's premiere, visionary director Peter Brook, composer Marius Constant, and screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière combined forces to reinvigorate this well-known story. In the resulting opera, The Tragedy of Carmen, music from Bizet’s Carmen is paired with scenes from Mérimée's novella to bring new insight into an opera - and a character - many of us thought we knew.
