CARMEN

Carmen makes a triumphant return to the theater of its birthplace, the opulent, newly renovated Opéra Comique in Paris. The new critically-heralded production is staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Adrian Noble and ignited by the performances of the spectacular soprano Anna Caterina Antonacci in the title role and an all-star cast. Carmen is given a fresh perspective, distinguished by period-instrument playing byJohn Eliot Gardiner leading the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique and the use of Richard Langham Smith’s new critical edition of the score.  Children Under 12: $7.50 / Adult Public: $13 / Adult Members: $9.00 Tickets available at the Box Office, www.CinemaArtsCentre.org , or by calling 800-838-3006
