Fueled by reckless passion, and insatiable desire, Seville’s hottest woman has one creed: to live, and die free. Along the way she meets Don José, an army corporal promised to his childhood sweetheart Micaëla, but Carmen - she has other plans for him... Fast forward, and Escamillo, the champion bullfighter enters the scene. After some serious song and dance, Carmen turns her affections toward this new flame, and Don José  will stop at nothing to win her back. Watch their stories unfold, in this production full of local flavor, dance, and soaring voices!
