Carmen is one of the most famous operas in the world. But, for Georges Bizet who composed this opera, Carmen is his only operatic hit. Bizet died suddenly after the 33rd performance, unaware that the work would achieve international acclaim within the following ten years. There are a lot of reasons why Carmen gained popularity. One of them is the fascinating music by Bizet. The music of Carmen has been widely acclaimed for brilliance of melody, harmony, atmosphere, and orchestration, and for the skill with which Bizet musically represented the emotions and suffering of his characters. Following a story of love and jealousy, Carmen is a performance you won’t want to miss. Presented by the Salt Marsh Opera.
