Opera Brava is staging Carmen on Friday, August 15, and the Marriage of Figaro on Saturday August 16.
Bizet's tale of the bewitching gypsy Carmen, who woos and seduces unfortunate soldier Don Jose to such disastrous consequences, has enthralled audiences for generations. ¶
By contrast, Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro is all about fun and sex, charting the hilarious twists and turns that befall Susanna and Figaro on their wedding day.
