Bizet — Carmen
The world’s most popular opera. A femme fatale for the ages, Carmen’s allure is spellbinding as she seduces a hapless corporal and a dashing bullfighter before meeting her tragic demise. Bizet’s bewitching melodies, including the “Habanera” and the “Toreador Song,” and stunning projected visuals make this semi-staged production an ideal introduction to the thrill of opera.
This free pre-concert talk, sponsored by the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Friends, is designed to provide audience members insight into the evening’s concert program and featured guest artists. Musically Speaking is hosted by Fort Wayne Philharmonic conducting staff, musicians, and guest artists.
Location: For Masterworks concerts at the Embassy Theatre: The Gallery of the Grand Wayne Center. Time – 6:30 p.m. (one hour before every Masterworks concert).
