While Carmen tickets were first sold hundreds of years ago, they continue to be in high demand. The opera was composed by French composer Georges Bizet, and features a libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halevy and first performed on March third, 1875. The show was adapted from the novel Carmen by Prosper Merimee, which was written thirty years prior.
The story of Carmen is set in 1820’s Spain and centers on the fall of an honorable soldier who falls in love with a gypsy. Throughout the story, the soldier’s love takes a toll on his spirit and morality and causes him to act against his nature. As the show depicts the dark side of human behavior in a way that was essentially unheard of in opera up to that point, those who purchased Carmen tickets during the show’s initial run were shocked. While the boundary-breaking show was met with a mixed reception by critics, it has persevered in part due to its beautiful, intricate score. Hundreds of years and thousands of worldwide performances later, a production of Carmen is likely to stir up a wealth of emotions and make for an unforgettable evening at the theater.
