Sept. 22-23. A co-production with Spokane Symphony and Opera Coeur d’Alene. At once intoxicating and reckless, charming and provocative, Georges Bizet’s Carmen is the story of the ultimate femme fatale. When the free-spirited seductress ensnares a soldier prone to jealousy and rage, the deadly spiral is inevitable. From the famous aria “Habanera” to her character’s untimely end, Metropolitan Opera star Sandra Piques Eddy’s “prowling, unnerving, physically unshackled performance” (Oregon Arts Watch) is not one to miss. Eckart Preu, conductor. Daily at 8 p.m.
