The D'Angelo Opera Workshop at Mercyhurst University will present excerpts from Bizet's Carmen on Friday, April 21, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 23, at 2 p.m. in Walker Recital Hall. A small orchestra, lavish costumes and great young voices will ensure an exciting musical experience. Most of the numbers are show-stopping and toe-tapping! Carmen, after making its debut at the Opera Comique in Paris in 1875, has become one of the most popular and beloved operas of all times. Even audience members who are not regular opera-goers with recognize many of its songs, including Carmen's "Habanera" and "Seguidilla," Don Jose's "Flower aria” and "The Toreador Song." Senior Christina Cacchione sings Carmen and alums Jared Hancock and Brandon Miller sing the Toreador and Don Jose. Tickets are $5 for the general public; $2 for Mercyhurst students and faculty and those 12 and under.
