The Seattle Opera is bringing Carmen to McCaw Hall October 15 – 29. This sexy opera by Bizet is set in Spain. Carmen, the main character, is a beautiful gypsy who does everything in her life with passion. She falls in love with a soldier, the young Don José. Their relationship leads to disastrous consequences, including Don José’s mutiny against his superior, and joining a gang of smugglers. When Carmen leaves him and falls for the bullfighter Escamillo, murder ensues.

In order to get you all ready for the opera, the Seattle Opera’s website offers you a 30 second teaser. You can also go to a free multimedia presentation by Seattle Opera educators that covers the basics of history, music and stagecraft at two Seattle area libraries:
