Houston Grand Opera - Bizet's Carmen

Obsession. Madness. Murder.

The femme fatale is ubiquitous in literature, from the biblical Delilah to Shakespeare's Cleopatra to the smoky, dangerous beauties of the film noir era. But none embody this character like the Gypsy Carmen, a sexual bird of prey whose charms lead Don José into a fatalistic chain of events, uncontrollable passion, jealousy, and bloodshed.

Sung in French with projected English translation. 

Tickets and seating are on your own.

Pre-curtain lectures are held 45 minutes before each performance on the Orchestra Level of the theater.  These 20-minutes presentations are free and open to all ticket holders.

Out of consideration for other patrons and for the performers, there is no late seating.

I will be at the top of the escalator to the left from 7:00PM to 7:10PM (wearing black/white outfit).  Please come and say hello.

Downtown offers free metered street parking after 6:00PM on weeknights (do not park by the red ones).  Parking in the Theater District Parking Garage is $7.00 on weeknights.  Clearance for trucks and vans is 6’8”.

*** PRE-SHOW DINNER ***

For anyone interested in having dinner before the performance, let's gather in the lobby of the Post Rice Lofts building at 5:45PM.  It is located at 909 Texas in between Travis and Main Streets.  I will be in the seating area on the left.  We will leave for dinner at 6:00PM.

    Sorry to miss the group outing. We will be going next Saturday. I was interested in hearing others thoughts on Das Rheingold. Catch up with you another time.
