The Atlanta Opera presents The Threepenny Carmen
May 2, 2021 - May 7, 2021
Carmen is no stranger to The Threepenny Bar. In this watering hole at the crossroads of nowhere, everyone has a story.
The Atlanta Opera’s all-new version of this beloved classic explores a modern Carmen. Set at the fringes of society, Bizet’s music is intertwined with the dramatic stomps and flourishes of flamenco.
The Threepenny Carmen walks a thin line between lust and death in one of opera’s most iconic love triangles.
Starring Megan Marino as Carmen, Michael Mayes as Escamillo, Richard Trey Smagur as Don Jose, and Tom Key as seedy bar owner Lilas Pastia.
This production features flamenco superstar Sonia Olla.
Performed in French with English supertitles
