Dallas Opera presents Carmen simulcast
The Dallas Opera will present a free public simulcast of the penultimate performance of Carmen by Georges Bizet. The simulcast will take place at Klyde Warren Park, just down the road from the production at Winspear Opera House.
The event will include the simulcast on a large high definition video screen, a Carmen costume contest for people and pets, the Tom & Jerry cartoon, "Carmen Get It!," trivia contests, and more. The simulcast will be hosted by Dallas Opera's Kristian Roberts and KLUV's Jody Dean.
Carmen, the infamous gypsy at the center of Bizet’s seductive masterpiece, warns the men she attracts immediately: she is not a woman to be tamed. When she sets her sights on a trusting soldier, Don José, nobody is prepared for the events that follow. Falling instantly in love with Carmen, José willingly follows her into a life of thieving, ignoring the attentions of Micaëla, his hometown sweetheart. As a dashing toreador enters the equation, Carmen finds her attractions shifting to the handsome bullfighter, pushing José to the brink of desperation.
