"Carmen" stands out in popularity amid the huge opera repertoire. Brimming with familiar melodies such as "Habanera" and "Sèguedille", this work is flawless in its entirety, truly deserving of being called a masterpiece. This season, Ginger COSTA-JACKSON takes the stage as the heroine. With her fiery good looks, COSTA- JACKSON was surely born to play Carmen. Opposite her, Don José is played by Oleg DOLGOV, star of the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. DOLGOV's characteristic Russian tenacity coupled with his lyrical charm sets expectations high for his rendering of Don José. Escamillo is played by Timothy RENNER, an up-and-coming American performer who is spreading his wings globally. SUNAKAWA Ryoko, one of Japan's leading sopranos, appears in the fitting role of Micaëla. Wielding the baton this Season is Jean-Luc TINGAUD, an authority on French music. This exciting performance sets out a new direction for the opera world and should not be missed.
