Feb 13, 2015

Knoxville Opera is presenting a production of one of the most frequently performed operas of all time: Bizet's Carmen.  Performances are Friday, February 13th at 8pm and Sunday, the 15th at 2:30pm.  Morning Concert host, Melony Dodson, talked with two of visiting artists in this production: soprano Zulimar Lopez-Hernandez, who is singing the role of  Micaela, and bass-baritone, Ryan Kuster, who is portraying the role of Escamillo.  This sensuously romantic opera boasts some of the most recognizable tunes in the opera repertoire, gypsies, bullfighters, colorful costumes, and fiery dances.
