Carmen.  Opera lovers rejoice! The Friends of the Wethersfield Library will sponsor a viewing of the opera “Carmen”. Georges Bizet’s 1875 opera stars Elīna Garanča and Roberto Alagna. Elīna Garanča leads the cast as Carmen, the iconic gypsy of the title—a woman desired by every man but determined to remain true to herself. Roberto Alagna is Don José, the soldier who falls under her spell and sacrifices everything for her love, only to be cast aside when the toreador Escamillo (Teddy Tahu Rhodes) piques Carmen’s interest.  Every aspect of Bizet’s thrilling tale is brought to life, from its lighthearted beginning to its inevitably tragic climax.

Tickets are required as seating is limited and are available at the Adult Services Information Desk at Wethersfield Library.
