Award-winning Broadway director Diane Paulus brings us a powerful new Carmen.

Passion ignites when Don José meets the fiercely independent Carmen, but she won’t give up her freedom without a fight.

The energy and emotion of Bizet’s score collide with urgent, raw choreography in this visceral new production.

Sung in French with English supertitles.
