On Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at 1:30 PM Chittenden County Opera Lovers and Pierson Library will present a screening of George Bizet’s “Carmen” in the Pierson Library Community Room.
The DVD is from the Met in HD series with Elīna Garanča and Roberto Alagna. The conductor is Yannick Nézet-Séguin. “Carmen” is considered one of opera’s earliest examples of the verismo style.
Before the screening, we will briefly discuss the literature of 19th century pulp fiction and the novelette by Prosper Mérimée, on which Bizet’s masterpiece is based.
