Though George Bizet’s Carmen is now considered one of the greatest operas of all time, its initial 1875 production was plagued by controversy over its titillating themes of seduction and murder. Carmen’s tempting of the soldier Don José away from his beloved Micaëla, her consorting with the toreador Escamillo, and her eventual death at the hands of her jealous ex were considered by some critics to be unfit for audiences. Though Bizet did not live to see his brainchild hailed as one of the first operas to make use of realistic settings such as the cigarette factory where Carmen and her chorus members work, audiences can still enjoy the loping strains of “The Toreador Song” and the sudden bursts of sound supporting Carmen’s scale-vaulting voice during the habanera.

Eastern Opera of New Jersey

The mission of Eastern Opera of New Jersey is pretty straightforward—that is, promoting the pleasures of opera—but in fulfilling it the company takes a three-pronged approach. First of all, it brings great opera to the people of New Jersey and any out-of-town relatives they want to show a good time with rapturous performances of Carmen, Otello, De Fledermaus, and other classics. The company also helps budding opera singers develop their range theatrically and vocally through training programs and workshop performances, while a lecture series and concert performances with guest lecturers enlighten as they engage audiences.
