Piedmont Opera presents Carmen

October 16, 2012

In 1884, The New York Times welcomed Bizet's "pretty and effective work" to the Metropolitan Opera, and by the beginning of 2011, the Met alone had performed it almost a thousand times! Next weekend, Piedmont Opera brings Carmen to the Triad with performances on Friday, October 26th at 8:00 pm, Sunday at 2:00 pm, and Tuesday the 30th at 7:30pm in the Stevens Center in Winston-Salem. Rising star tenor Jason Wickson sings the role of Don Jose, and acclaimed Baritone Michael Redding is Escamillo. There will be lots of fun special events surrounding the performances as well.

Mezzo soprano Mabel Ledo who sings the role of Carmen, and Piedmont Opera Artistic Director Jamie Allbritten sat down with David Ford.
