The Atlanta Opera opens its 2012-2013 season with Bizet’s classic, Carmen. Set in sultry Spain, the opera traces Don José’s ill-fated attraction to the alluring gypsy, Carmen. When Carmen casts off her ardent lover for the handsome toreador, Escamillo, José’s intense jealousy turns to vengeance and dooms the fiery romance to a tragic end. Carmen is full of sizzling opera hits, including the famous “Habañera” and the irresistible Toreador’s song.
