You think you know Carmen, but have you heard the whole story? This Tony-award winning innovative reconceptualization of Bizet’s opera dives deeper into the physiological and moral aspects of the Mérimée novella that Bizet’s Carmen is based. Devised by eminent director Peter Brook in 1983, The Tragedy of Carmen provides an electrifying theatrical experience, deepening every opera lover’s perception of a woman we think we know juxtaposed against all the great tunes and musical moments from Bizet’s Carmen that we all know and love. Does fate control us? Do we have opportunities to break away and forge new paths, even if that path leads to violence or death? Join us in discovering this exciting story reimagined.

Performed by arrangement with Boosey & Hawkes, Inc., Sole Agent in the US, Canada and Mexico for Editions Salabert, a Universal Music Publishing Group company, publisher and copyright owner.
