Carmen a must-see

Madison Erhardt

Opera Kelowna hosts Carmen, one of the world’s most popular operas. 

The show runs at Kelowna Community Theatre Thursday through Sunday.

"It's a very cool story about an interesting woman who's very opportunistic. Things don't end well for her ... because as you know, in opera, if your name is in the title, you are usually dead in the end. But through all the rest of it, it's very exciting," artistic director Alexandra Babbel says. 

The classic opera by French composer Georges Bizet is based on a novella of the same title by Prosper Mérimée. 

Musical numbers are separated by dialogue.

"It's going to be my 10th production of Carmen, and I must say that every time I feel something different about Don Jose and also about Carmen and the relationship," said Steeve Michaud, who plays the male lead in the production. 

The opera will be translated into English through subtitles displayed on screens at the sides of the theatre.
