Our LAO at Home broadcast of Carmen is here and we couldn't be more excited about it. 

How will you be listening at home? (Living room flamenco is highly encouraged.) 

Carmen Listening Guide: With listening tips, questions to help you analyze the plot and characters, and a scene-by-scene breakdown, you'll master the sounds, recognize the foreshadowing, and understand the depth of this operatic masterpiece. (Designed for students in grades 7-12, but helpful for everyone!)
