Enjoy this outstanding performance of the world-famous opera Carmen featuring the acclaimed international touring company Teatro Lirico D’Europa’s international cast and orchestra, with additional roles played by opera students from USC and local musicians. Bulgarian mezzo-soprano Viara Zhelezova will sing the title role. She “captured the hearts of the audience and all the men on stage…. Zhelezova inhabited the role with a brazen, feline seductiveness that spelled danger in big letters. She taunted her victims with relish and abandon. Even better, she sang to these men with an unusual degree of nuance that was almost conversational. She caressed the tones and enunciated the French words with clarity. There was no mistaking her intention.” (The Daily Gazette, Schenectady). Sung in French with English supertitles.
