Salt Marsh Opera Presents ‘Carmen’ at ‘The Kate’ This Afternoon

OLD SAYBROOK —  Salt Marsh Opera was founded in 2010 by Simon Holt, who initially served as its Music Director and then become Artistic Director in 2015. He also currently serves as Director of Music at the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme and Music Director of Cappella Cantorum in Deep River, Conn.

Salt Marsh Opera’s 2021 fall production is fast approaching and tickets are limited.
Carmen is one of the most famous operas in the world but for Georges Bizet, who composed the opera, Carmen is his only operatic success.
Bizet died suddenly after the 33rd performance, unaware that the work would achieve international acclaim within the following 10 years.
There are a many reasons why Carmen gained popularity. One of them is the fascinating music by Bizet, which has been widely acclaimed for its brilliance of melody, harmony, texture, and orchestration, and for the skill with which Bizet musically portrayed the emotions and suffering of his characters.

Following a story of love and jealousy, Carmen is a not-to-be-missed performance.

Carmen will be performed Oct. 1 and 3, at The United Theatre in Westerly, R.I. and Oct. 8 and 10, at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center.
