Bay Shore Lyric Opera presents one of opera’s most beloved opera – Georges Bizet’s Carmen. The opera is written in the genre of opéra comique with musical numbers separated by dialogue. It is set in southern Spain and tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen. José abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts from his military duties, yet loses Carmen’s love to the glamorous toreador Escamillo, after which José kills her in a jealous rage.

Bizet’s grand French opera Carmen will be presented by BSLO at four Bay Area locations! This production is fully-staged, sung in French with English spoken recitative and will feature BSLO’s artists accompanied by the members of The Winchester Orchestra of San Jose under the baton of Michael DiGiacinto.
