Carmen's Place (A Fantasy)

April 26 - June 16, 2013 

A musical like no other! Carmen is a young waitress who grew up Puerto Rican and working class in the projects behind Lincoln Center. She's been in love with her boyfriend, José, a beat cop, since they were 10. One day, three young opera singers, on a break from rehearsal for the opera, Carmen, come in to the Opera Diner where she works. They strike up an unlikely friendship with Carmen. A new romance is sparked. Will Carmen, José, and their new friends fall under the spell of the drama and tragedy of the opera? Or can they create a new kind of love? Carmen’s Place features an original pop score by Annie Roboff and Fred Newman, and in its show-within-the-show, some of the best-loved and most familiar operatic numbers ever performed. Directed by AUDELCO Award winner Gabrielle L. Kurlander, Carmen's Place will only be delighting audiences for a few more weeks. So don't miss it!
