Where in the world is Carmen? In San Diego, of course. The famed opera will take you from the City by the Sea to the warm
climate of Spain - not too far a journey in terms of atmosphere, but nevertheless, Carmen is a story packed with drama that
opera fans will enjoy. Make sure you get your Carmen
Carmen is perhaps one of the most famous operas of all time, an accomplishment that surely would have left its composer,
Georges Bizet, glowing. Bizet adapted the story from a novel published in the mid-19th century, and hoped to pioneer a whole
new genre of opera. Sadly, the show was a commercial failure upon its release, and Bizet died not long afterward, never to
know how beloved his opera would become.
What better place to see a classic opera in San Diego than at the San
Diego Civic Theatre? The theater has been entertaining audiences for generations, and brings the finest casts to the downtown
area. Take a trolley or a cab and get to the show early.
Carmen is one of the most popular of all operas, so you can bet that there will be a rush for opera tickets when it opens at the Civic Theatre. Make
sure you buy your tickets from StubHub well in advance.
