Opera UCLA Presents The Tragedy of Carmen
The Tragedy of Carmen is an intense 80 minute distillation of Bizet’s Carmen, crafted by theatrical genius Peter Brook and his collaborators Jean Claude Carrière and Marius Constant.
The English translation is by Sheldon Harnick. The action focuses on the four protagonists, with a chamber orchestra providing a varied soundscape. A worldwide phenomenon since its premiere in the 1980s, The Tragedy of Carmen comes to UCLA for eight performances at The Little Theater from May 27 to June 4.
