Carmen, Bizets famous opera, tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naive soldier who is seduced by the wiles
of the fiery gypsy. José abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts from his military duties.
Yet, he loses Carmens love to the glamorous toreador Escamillo. José kills her in a jealous rage.
Watch the Sunrisers explore the story of Carmen through excellence and artistry.
