The Threepenny Carmen

TAGS: Opera Music Limited Sitting CDC Social Distancing
Wed 4/28 - Sat 5/8

The Threepenny Carmen is not simply a stripped down version of the original opera, it digs into what Bizet’s 1875 classic might mean for audiences today. Capturing its essence as an exploration of sexual freedom, social hierarchies and the class system.

Directed by Tomer Zvulun, The Atlanta Opera General & Artistic Directior, this world premiere production updates the action to a Spanish-themed dive bar, where Carmen works as a cabaret singer. Designed by ArtsImpulse Theatre Award-winner Julia Noulin-Mérat and Joanna Schmink respectively, the sets and costumes draw inspiration from the films of Pedro Almodóvar, using bold primary colors and a larger-than-life aesthetic to reflect the bar owner’s crudely reductive approach to the cultures he exploits.
