Sandra Piques Eddy, Carmen
Spokane Symphony Orchestra — Eckart Preu, conductor
Opera Coeur d’Alene — Spokane Symphony Chorale
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.
