The must-see event of the Fall Season! Boston Lyric Opera’s 40th Anniversary Season launches with Calixto Bieto’s provocative, groundbreaking production of Bizet’s Carmen, bringing opera back to Boston Opera House.
BLO’s 40th Anniversary Season launches with the bicoastal American premiere of Calixto Bieito’s Carmen in a co-production with San Francisco Opera – marking the director’s long-awaited U.S. opera debut. Set in the arid earthiness of 1970’s post-Franco Spanish North Africa, this raw and cinematic vision is a powerful account of the defiantly free-spirited woman and her obsessive lover, set to Bizet’s intoxicating score.
