Our intimate and lyrical English-language production of CARMEN is back! Originally scheduled for March 2020, director Sammi Cannold (Encores’ Evita, Forbes’ 30 Under 30) helms a new cast including Ginger Costa-Jackson as Carmen, Mikaela Bennett as Micaëla, and John Brancy as Escamillo. Sung in its original Opéra Comique version, with dialogue rather than recitative, our production marks the NY Premiere of this fiery and dramatic translation – written by Broadway legend Sheldon Harnick, originally commissioned by the Houston Grand Opera.
Featuring Orchestra of St. Luke’s and the MasterVoices Chorus conducted by MV Artistic Director Ted Sperling, along with flamenco-infused choreography by Argentinian-born choreographer Gustavo Zajac, get ready for a gorgeous Carmen in all its musical and theatrical glory!
Tickets: Priced from $30 to $175, may be purchased beginning on August 11 online at jazz.org, at the Jazz at Lincoln Center box office, Broadway at 60th Street, or by calling 212-721-6500.
