Scheduled Programming: OT discusses “Carmen”

As some reviews from an unintentionally long winter hiatus slowly come together, I wanted to share with you all the program notes that I recently wrote for Lyric Opera of Chicago‘s production of Carmen. You can find my thoughts about the Prosper Merimée novella that inspired Bizet and his team, as well as some of the cultural context surrounding the opera’s premiere, on page 30. Enjoy!
