Boston Opera Collaborative presents La Tragédie de Carmen, a Peter Brook adaptation of Bizet’s classic Carmen. In this powerful and seductive 90-minute re-interpretation, Brook brings the original's immensely popular and melodic favorites and trims the story to a taut and fast-paced tragedy of four people from contrasting cultures and traditions.

The opera is a mesmerizing tale following Carmen, a fiercely independent woman who catches the attention of the young, naive soldier, Don José. He then falls head over heels for her, abandoning his childhood love, Micaëla. As Don José's love and lust for Carmen strengthens, his passion devolves into jealousy and murder. The intricate plot, rich with emotion and drama, leaves audiences spellbound and dazzled as the tragic consequences of Don José's obsession with Carmen unfold before our very eyes.

La Tragédie de Carmen features a 15-piece chamber orchestra led by our new Music Director, Ken Yanagisawa, stage direction by Alexandra Dietrich, and the talents of Boston's up-and-coming emerging artists.
