The Celestial Opera Company announces its upcoming production of one of the world’s most famous and beloved operas, Bizet’s Carmen. Stage Director Maurice Godin (House, Friends) creates a mesmerizing scene of love, duty, passion, and betrayal. The desperate young soldier Don José is led astray from his village life and love, the adoring village girl Micaela, as he chases the irresistible gypsy temptress, Carmen. Carmen’s seduction and charms lead Don Jose into obsession and ruin when she leaves him for the swaggering bullfighter, Escamillo. The opera will be fully staged, costumed, and will feature a small orchestral ensemble led by Music Director Tim León. The opera will be sung in French with English supertitles. The performances will feature a pre-opera talk given by musicologist and Ingolf Dahl Award winner Danielle Stein one hour before curtain time. All performances will be held at The Woman’s Club of South Pasadena, 1424 Fremont Ave, South Pasadena, CA 91030. Sunday, June 5th at 4 pm Saturday, June 11th at 8 pm Sunday, June 12th at 4 pm Friday, June 17th at 8 pm
