  Carmen at Lyric Opera


Lyric Opera
20 N. Wacker Drive Chicago

One look from this seductive gypsy temptress and any man she wants is hers — driving them mad with hot desire and flicking them aside like cold cigarette ash when her fickle ardor cools. Don José gives up everything — fiancée, regiment, and honor — to be with her, but his passion turns deadly when she jilts him for a big-time matador.

Chicago Sun Times - Recommended

"...As Carmen, Bulgarian debutante soprano Nadia Krasteva offers an unusual combination, sometimes seeming removed both vocally and dramatically and, at other times, nailing things. Certainly her lifting her dress with her teeth to show Jose her leg when she is under arrest for a stabbing and has her hands bound behind her back is quite a contribution."

ChicagoCritic - Highly Recommended

"...The audience at the performance I attended gave several “bravos” including a most enthusiastic standing ovation to the cast. Carmen remains a favorite and this production plays exuberantly to sophisticate opera patrons.  Carmen is a worthy first opera for those who have never attended an opera."
