Character Study—Dalila and Carmen
Presented by Naomi Barrettara and Stephanie Pierson

Bizet’s Carmen and Saint-Saëns’s Samson et Dalila give us two of the most powerful femme fatale characters in the repertoire. Carmen is often referred to as the quintessential femme fatale: living and loving on her own terms. Dalila is intent on using her seductive powers to break Samson from the moment that the curtain rises. This second session will explore the visual, musical, and interpretive elements of bringing these two powerhouses to life on the opera stage.

This course has four sessions. To purchase all sessions of Opera Boot Camp: Femmes Fatales, please click here.
