Sep 20, 2018

Poster for the 1875 opening of the German language production of "Carmen" in Vienna.

Journey to Seville with this week’s Sunday Opera (9/23 3:00 p.m.) and the LA Opera production of George Bizet’s “Carmen” featuring Ana Maria Martinez as the ill-fated title character.  Joining Martinez is Brandon Jovanovich as obsessed Don Jose, and Amanda Woodbury as the faithful Micaela.  Rounding out the quartet is Alexander Vinogradov as the egotistical bullfighter Escamillo.  James Conlon conducts the La Opera Chorus and Orchestra.  

Join Michael Kownacky after the opera for more music of Bizet and his complete incidental music for the Alphonse Daudet play “LArlesienne” featuring the Orfeon Donostiarra and the Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse with Michel Plasson conducting.
