Carmen, the seductive and enigmatic heroine of Bizet's opera, has enticed Corporal Don José who upends is life to be with her.  When her interest turns to the charismatic bullfighter Escamillo, José's enraged jealousy leads to catastrophe.  Opera-lovers and newcomers alike will bask in some of opera's most recognizable music!

Deceit Outwitted by Joseph Haydn

Saturday, March 23, 2024 @ 1:30pm

Screen Shot 2023-05-18 at 3.58.35 PM.png

Joseph Haydn is one of classical music's most famous composers, but his substantial body of opera is virtually unknown. In the delightful comedy, Deceit Outwitted (L'infedeltà delusa), the peasant, Filippo hopes his daughter Sandrina will marry the rich farmer Nencio instead of the poor peasant with whom she is in love. Through a series of comic complications (including a parade of disguises), all is happily resolved, accompanied by Haydn's inventive score and brilliant singing. This will be a Sarasota Opera premiere.
