Carmen by Bizet is the most popular French opera in the world, captivating audiences with its sparkling score and such unforgettable melodies as L’amour est un oiseau rebelle, Près des remparts de Séville, La fleur que tu m’avais jetée, the Toreador Song, and many others. This Opéra de Québec new production stars two winners of Plácido Domingo’s Operalia competition, held in Quebec City in 2008, mezzo Ketevan Kemoklidze and tenor Thiago Arancam.

Carmen, a gypsy, works in the tobacco plant in Seville and dreams of a life of freedom and independence. Don José, a young solider already engaged to a girl from his native village, becomes obsessed with Carmen. His all-consuming passion proves to be the downfall of them both.
