Bizet's Carmen

Date: April 27, 2019,
Venue: Century II Performing Arts & Convention Center - 225 W. Douglas Ave., Wichita

The Event:

For many, Carmen is the masterpiece that truly defines Opera – full of unforgettable music and high drama. Carmen tells the story of a captivating, intoxicating woman and her jealous lover who just won’t take no for an answer.

          Mezzo-soprano Sarah Heltzel stars in the title role as the seductive gypsy. Critics have already taken notice, praising her “potent star performances” and “rich, powerhouse voice.” Ms. Heltzel has previously appeared with the WGO as Maddalena in Rigoletto and as Princess Eboli in Don Carlo. Tenor Michael Wade Lee stars as Don José, Carmen’s obsessive lover. He returns to the WGO for the first time since starring in the title role of WGO’s 2011 Il Trovatore. Milanese conductor Francesco Corti makes his WGO debut conducting this production. Maestro Corti has previously served as Music Director at Scottish National Opera and served as Principal Conductor of the Deutsche Opera am Rhein in Dusseldorf, Germany.
