Don’t miss the Oklahoma premiere of this Grammy-award winning new opera by Robert Aldridge. Based on the novel by Nobel laureate Sinclair Lewis and the 1960 film with Burt Lancaster, this is the story of the rise and fall of a charismatic but unscrupulous adventurer who finds fame and fortune by joining the Evangelical movement in the 1920’s Midwest. Sung in English.

Score by Georges Bizet
Libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy
The sexiest and most notorious gypsy of all time returns to Tulsa Opera, followed by contrabandiers, bullfighters, flamenco dancers and a soldier with a fatal obsession. April in Seville doesn’t get any sweeter than our production of Bizet’s Carmen, featuring mezzo soprano Leann Sandel-Pantaleo and tenor Jonathan Burton in their Tulsa Opera debuts. Sung in French with English supertitles.
