Carmen (2022) – Saskatoon Opera

Lighting Designer

June 11th – 18th, 2022

Set in Seville, 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. He is later induced to join the smugglers with whom Carmen is associated but is driven wild by jealousy. This comes to a head when Carmen clarifies her preference for the bull-fighter Escamillo. The last act, outside the bull ring in Seville, brings Escamillo to the arena, accompanied by Carmen, stabbed to death by Don José, who has been awaiting her arrival.
