Georges Bizet's Carmen
James Conlon opened the 2017/18 season leading his eagerly anticipated first Carmen in Los Angeles. In her seventh Los Angeles appearance, Ana María Martínez made a striking impression as Carmen, one of her newest roles. In addition to drawing capacity crowds at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, the September 23 performance of Carmen was also enjoyed by thousands of music lovers thanks to live simulcasts to the Santa Monica Pier and to Exposition Park.
Production made possible by generous gifts from The Alfred and Claude Mann Fund in honor of Placido Domingo, and from The Tarasenka Pankiv Fund.
