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. This local production gives the piece a semi-staged treatment, placing the focus on the cast’s commanding voices.
