Notes:
Bizet’s celebrated opera CARMEN receives a spectacularly bold reworking. Proudly rapacious and definitely erotic, Karmen is both a pan-sexual force of nature and a social outlaw. Jailed in a women’s prison, Karmen turns the table on her captors by seducing the warden Angelique and escaping into the underground. At the society wedding of a prominent policeman, Karmen denounces the rich guests, brawls with the bride, and beds the groom. Through Karmen’s insatiable lust for life and unwavering disgust with hypocrisy sow the seeds of her operatic downfall.
