Jay Dawson’s touch enlivens the familiar melodies from this famous opera. The show begins with a suspenseful buildup as it leads to a chilling fanfare, followed by the popular HABANERA, in a slightly twisted setting. In Carmen Production, phrases from a lovely intermezzo are alternated with a military march. This is a brilliant study in contrasts with great visual opportunities.The drum section shows its skills in the wild Spanish dance in Carmen Gypsy Dance. The best is saved for last…..LES TOREADORS, the most famous melody of all is showcased in the finale. The show concludes with a recap of the opening fanfare and a fast-paced finish.
