UTRGV Opera Theater Presents Carmen
June 2, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
UTRGV Opera Theater will present one of the greatest operas of all time, “Carmen,” in Spanish with English captions. The festival production features music and spoken dialogue in Spanish translation by Eduardo de Bray, with subtitles in English. A high-quality student cast and orchestra have been assembled for this fully staged performance.
Set in 1820 in Sevilla, Spain, the four-act opera is offered in opera comique style – that is, with spoken rather than sung dialogue. It’s a simple plot – boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets revenge – but the wonderful, dramatic melodies have made this 1875 opera the most performed in the world. Almost everyone can hum the Habanera and the Toreador Song.
