The University of Providence Great Falls Performing Arts presents the timeless opera Carmen.

Carmen is an opera in 4 acts by French composer Georges Bizet. Set in Seville in 1830, the opera deals with the love and jealousy of Don José, who is lured away from his duty as a soldier and his beloved Micaëla by the gypsy factory-girl Carmen, whom he allows to escape from custody.

The music of Carmen has since been widely acclaimed for brilliance of melody, harmony, atmosphere, and orchestration, and for the skill with which Bizet musically represented the emotions and suffering of his characters.
