Kirstin Chavez has performed CARMEN throughout the world over the last decade and a half, and in this intimate portrait of Bizet’s iconic female heroine, she creates a one-woman tour de force of spoken monologues, choreographed Flamenco dance, and soulful singing. With limited seating on the stage, the audience will experience an intimate view of Carmen’s lust for life and freedom that ultimately led to her need to embrace death. Interact with the living, breathing Carmen “beyond opera, beyond music… where theatre and truth meet” (Opera News, NY).
Stay after the show and join a panel of experts for a thought-provoking conversation about women’s rights, the value of strong women in our modern society, and how communities can nurture the spirits of young women around the globe.
