Our family went to see the dress rehearsal of Carmen by the Vancouver Opera last night. Carmen is a famous opera written by Georges Bizet. The performance was in French with subtitles.
We love the familiar songs of "Habanera" and "Toreador", and the beautiful set and elaborate costumes. I like the character of Michaela the best, and my favourite scene is when Escamillo swaggered into town singing "Toreador"! The girl who played the gypsy Carmen is really good too but the character is a little too mean!
