Rockport Opera House, Rockport
Director Edwin Cahill’s approach is to strip the classic opera to its bones, while maintaining the integrity which made it one of the most produced and beloved operas of all time. This visionary young director relates the original story of "Carmen" to Chuck Palahniuk’s "Fight Club," with its central theme of control and mastery as well as a patriarchy verses the underground. A powerful and compelling operatic reimagining to close our 2016 SCREEN DOOR Festival.
