The Tragedy of Carmen is an adaptation of Georges Bizet's opera Carmen, with a new libretto by Sheldon Harnick. The story follows the fiery and seductive Carmen, a cigarette factory worker in Seville, Spain, who captures the attention of soldier Don José, leading him down a destructive path of jealousy and violence.

Their tumultuous relationship ultimately comes to a tragic end when Carmen chooses the glamorous toreador Escamillo over Don José, resulting in his murder of Carmen in a fit of despair. The opera explores themes of passion, betrayal, and obsession, set to the stirring melodies and rhythms of Bizet's iconic score.

The production is part of the Civic Impact and Hattie Mae Lesley Resident Artists season in collaboration with I.M. Terrell Academy.
