carmenAn Evening at the Opera with Harvard and Princeton: Carmen,  Music by Georges Bizet

Meet the hottest woman in all of Seville—a free spirit who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go get it. But what happens when the attention she attracts turns obsessive? Find out in this pulse-pounding, picturesque production.

Seville is a powder keg about to explode: A swirling chorus of factory workers and townsfolk come head to head. A fiery bullfighter entertains a lively crowd. A good soldier wavers between defiance and honor. At the center of it all is Carmen, a free-spirited seductress who is driven by her heat’s desire. J’Nai Bridges and Matthew Polenzani make their role debuts in Director Francesca Zambello’s production. Complete synopsis is on the Opera website:

There will be a hosted wine reception starting at 6pm before curtain. The reception will take place on the Dress Circle level along the north promenade of the Opera House.

Since 2005, we have enjoyed wonderful performances at SF Opera. And we are pleased and proud to say that we have sold over 1,000 tickets.

Dr. Alexandra Amati, President of the Harvard Club of San Francisco and Professor of Music at USF, will lead a special pre-performance discussion.
