Perhaps the most famous opera in history, Georges Bizet's CARMEN premiered in 1875 at the Opéra-Comique in Paris. The four-act opera, featuring a libretto written by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy and adapted from the novella by Prosper Mérimée, remains one of the most exciting and popular works in the repertoire. Now, nearly 150 years after its premiere, Arizona Opera is presenting the story of Carmen, adapted as a graphic novel by tenor, director, and writer Alek Shrader, illustrated by legendary artist P. Craig Russell (NEIL GAIMAN'S AMERICAN GODS) and the acclaimed artist Aneke (BYLINES IN BLOOD), and lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. This epic hardcover graphic novel features a stunning cover illustrated and colored by Aneke.
