Event Description

Georges Bizet’s immensely popular opera, Carmen, tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen. The music of Carmen has been acclaimed for its brilliance of melody, harmony, atmosphere and orchestration. Bizet is also skilled in the way he represents musically the emotions and suffering of his characters. Directed by Josh Shaw, the cast features the glorious mezzo soprano voice of Dawn Pierce as Carmen, the exciting tenor Brian Cheney as Don José, Southern Illinois’ own Eric McCluskey as Escamillo, and other fabulous cast members. See this performance Friday night or Sunday afternoon in the brand new, 750-seat Carterville High School Performing Arts Center as the final event of the 2013 Southern Illinois Music Festival.
