Bizet's Carmen at St. Mark's Anglican Church in Florence
About the Event
Georges Bizet's opera with the libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy is among the most famous compositions in the repertoire! The opera in four acts will be performed by four singers in costumes, accompanied by piano, in the intimate setting of the Anglican Church of Florence.
The soldier Don José helps Carmen to escape from prison because he has fallen in love with the beautiful gypsy. But, his love brings him into difficulties, because Escamillo, the famous bull fighter, is also madly in love with Carmen. Finally, Don José stands caught between two woman and two social classes — exciting Carmen on one side, and loyal Micaela on the other side.
