The Washington Chorus joins forces with The Washington National Opera Orchestra and members of the Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program to bring Bizet’s masterpiece to vivid life in a concert version on the stage of the Kennedy Center Concert Hall.Experience one of the world’s most popular operas in a bold, new way: see Carmen through the eyes of her killer’s mother. In John Constable’s wickedly smart narrative, Don Jose’s mother recounts her son’s fatal affair with opera's original femme fatale. Starring mezzo-soprano Aleks Romano (Washington National Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Glimmerglass Festival) in the title role, and conducted by Artistic Director Christopher Bell.
