An Irresistible Theatrical Event

Composed by Georges Bizet

Confident, strong, beautiful – Carmen steals the heart of almost every man she meets, but what she values most is the freedom to live life on her own terms. The smitten young soldier Don José lets his desire for Carmen spiral into obsession. Their destinies are intertwined in Georges Bizet’s timeless tragedy, renowned as one of the greatest stories that Opera has ever told.

Student Night at the Opera

TD Canada Trust

Opera is so much more than just understanding the words sung. It is a total experience, from thinking about the production beforehand to actually participating as an audience member. My students just loved the performance and I will definitely take them again. Thank you for making the opera so accessible to our students.– Val Pierce, Grant Park High School
