Not Your Grandmother's Opera

Friday, September 20, 7:00 & Sunday, September 22, 1:00

The Nevada Opera’s (NVO) new production of Carmen on September 20th at 7:00 p.m. and 22nd at 1:00 p.m. 2013 celebrates Street Vibrations. Street Vibrations’ upbeat atmosphere will be the setting for this new version of this great opera.

NVO’s Carmen will remain true to the themes and the music, but like Bizet’s original Carmen, this version will use dialog. To create a viable production, we are using a new translation based on the original translation by Ted and Deena Puffer.

This incredible production will be designed and directed by Joachim Schamberger (director of NVO’s Sweeney Todd) with film, animation and local themes. Moreover, for this unique event, NVO will present this production in the Eldorado Showroom, modeled on a beautiful Opera House in Italy. The event will offer meal and show packages as well.

Be part of history; see this incredible new production of this great opera!
