Opera Preview ~ Carmen
Knox United Church, Sunday, September 21 at 3pm
Bizet’s Carmen was premiered in 1875 at the Opéra Comique in Paris. The bourgeois audience, used to the light-hearted, frothy entertainment usually seen at this venue, were shocked by the sensuality of the music, the savage passions in the story, and the low-born protagonists being so graphically depicted. Bizet died a broken man three months after Carmen’s disastrous premiere, unaware that it would go on to become one of most popular operas of all time.

Carmen has been described as follows: “the opera is a consummate blend of color, melody, humanity, passion and physical action in which there is never any attempt to idealize or ‘sanitize’ the characters – but rather they are depicted as real ‘flesh and blood’ human beings with raw passions dealing with true-to-life situations. In spite of its ‘naturalism’, Carmen is an intensely romantic work. It throbs with emotion, swirls with vibrant, nationalistic dances, and sweeps from scenes of vibrant color to locales steeped in gloom and foreboding”.

Another commentator notes: “Bizet’s score, which teems with fetching melodies and colorful scenes, is so immediately appealing that it is easy to overlook its ingenious subtleties”.

Dr. David Godin will provide a musical and dramatic analysis of Carmen and explore the many “subtleties” of this magnificent score at the Fellowship Hall of Knox United Church (5600 Balaclava Street) on Sunday September 21st, beginning at 3:00 P.M.

Light refreshments will be served at the break. Admission is by donation (income tax receipts will be issued for donations of $15 or more) with all proceeds going towards the on-going ministry of Knox Church. (starfishian)
