Bizet, Carmen (excepts, concert version)

Bizet’s Carmen is without a doubt the most popular opera of all time. Who hasn’t hummed the Habanera or the toreador song? Relive the greatest moments of this timeless love story and sway to the seductive melodies performed by an impressive cast of artists.

As a prelude to the opera, an intimate program will be presented to mark the 70th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima.


Presented by the Nussia and André Aisenstadt Foundation,
the Mirella and Lino Saputo Foundation, and the BMO Financial Group.
