Bizet‘s opera depicts love, obsession and jealousy, and is one of the most popular operas ever written! The OCM presents this semi-staged and abridged concert version of Carmen featuring the four principal characters: Lebanese-Canadian mezzo-soprano Julie Nesrallah as Carmen, Mexican-Canadian tenor Ernesto Ramírez as Don José, Cameroonian-Canadian soprano Suzanne Taffot as Micaëla, and Québécois baritone Hugo Laporte as Escamillo. Centaur Theatre’s Artistic Director Eda Holmes will add concert staging to this abridged version of Bizet’s thrilling opera.

At the start of this concert, the OCM pays tribute to Moroccan-Québécoise Danièle Henkel, a highly successful Québécoise immigrant business woman.
