Anchorage Opera

Event Info

No man can resist the fiery seductress, Carmen, who knows what she wants and knows how to get it. To live free and to die free is her credo. But be careful what you wish for when fate deals its final hand.

Don José, obsessed with and possessed by Carmen, sacrifices everything to follow her into a life of crime, only to have her leave him for the dashing matador, Escamillo. But in a realm where desire and hot-blooded passion reign supreme, blind love can turn to blind rage and love triangles can be deadly!

One of the most popular operas of all time, Bizet’s flamenco-infused music overflows with famous melodies including the ‘Habanera’ and Toreador Song. If you are new to opera, this one is for you! If you’re an opera-lover, you’ll be OBSESSED with Carmen! Starring internationally acclaimed artists and wonderful local talent, including a Children's Chorus that will warm your hearts.


Plan to join us one hour before each performance of Carmen to learn interesting background, and fascinating insights into this blockbuster favorite. We are proud to present our colleague in the arts, Zachary Milliman, as your Pre-Opera Talk Host for Carmen.
