French mezzo-soprano Géraldine Chauvet has sung on the world's top stages (including at The Met) and makes her Canadian debut in Carmen this Saturday! And with Maria Lamont setting the action on the verge of the Spanish Civil War, this is a new production that you will not want to miss!

Carmen is arguably the most beloved opera of all time and tickets are selling faster than the running of the bulls! Only a limited number of tickets remain for Saturday and Thursday evenings. Tuesday evening offers the best availability and value with seats starting at $40. If you don't already have tickets, act now for the best seats at the best prices!

Go backstage at the Jube with Dinner Television's Claire Hanna, and hear from the creative team and cast of Carmen.

The digital edition of the Carmen program is now available online! Learn all about director Maria Lamont's vision, the scenery and costumes, Bizet's life, and preview our April production of Donizetti's tudor tragedy Mary Stuart (Maria Stuarda). 

It wasn't easy getting them to agree to be in the same room, but Queen Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots (stars of April's Mary Stuart) have agreed to make joint appearances at all three nights of Carmen! It's not every day that you get to have your photo taken with royalty, so join us in the main floor lobby for a free photo-op. And don't forget to practice your curtsies!
We can't wait to announce our 2016/17 season this Saturday at the Jubilee! Edmonton Opera staff and volunteers will be in the main-floor lobby to answer any questions about next season's operas and season ticket packages.
