Fiery flamenco joins brilliant singing to ignite Bizet’s classic in a vibrant production conducted by Joseph Marcheso, with reimagined stage direction by Lillian Groag. In a new collaboration with the acclaimed Flamenco Society of San José, dance, singing, and drama will come together to tell the passionate tale of a defiant heroine, whose rebellious quest for freedom seals her tragic fate.
