The Show

A closer inspection of an object of obsession.

In a fascinating adaptation of Bizet's timeless Carmen by Music Director Jonathan Khuner, we are excited to present rising star Buffy Baggott as history's most famous gypsy. Carmen is Ms. Baggott's signature role, having performed it with the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Arizona Opera, and many others. Reviews have compared her portrayal to an "animal stalking its kill," "a vamp," "a lithe siren" and "Cleopatra spiced with nearly every role Dietrich ever played. . . ."

* Approximate running time: just under 2 hours
* Sung in English with English supertitles
* Pre-performance lecture in the library beginning 45 mins prior to curtain.
