Come see Operamuse's production of Bizet's Carmen - one of opera’s favorite shows, with tons of music you will find familiar! Operamuse's version has been set in rural America, where there aren’t many options for entertainment. One of the few thriving businesses in the town is Lil’ Pasties Strip Club, where the most popular night of the week is Latin Night. Unfortunately, all of the Latin workers are striking due to unfair treatment and pay. The club owner has to make do with the staff he has left and hope for the best...come see how it all works out for Don Jose, Michaëla, Escamillo, and the enchanting Carmen in this exciting and fun new production.

Operamuse produces hour-long adaptations of operas in modern English. Our mission is to make opera more accessible by telling relevant stories in intimate settings.

Cast:
Carmen - Rachelle Moss
José - Andrew Etherington
Escamillo - Julian Riesenthel
Micaëla - Laura Loge

Pianist - Beth Tankersley
Director - Sammie Gorham

Ample parking is available. Take I-5 to 18 E. Once on 18 E take the Weyerhaeuser Way S exit and turn Right. Continue onto S 349th St which becomes 28th Ave S after a slight left (1 mile). Turn left onto S 360th St. Go .3 miles and Turn right onto 32nd Ave S which becomes S 369th Pl after 400ft turn left onto 34th Ave S. Our house is hidden down a short gravel driveway off of 34th Ave S and there are 6 steps down to the front door. Busing to this location is not recommended but is possible.

Attendees will be asked to make a donation (minimum $10) all of which goes to the musicians. Please bring any drinks and snacks you'd like to share.

Note: Please do not arrive early unless you have a special need and have communicated with me. Both hosts and musicians require preparation and set up time. The start time (7:30) means that is the time you should arrive, and you can expect the program will start slightly later. Thanks for your consideration.

I've performed in several groupmuse events myself and wanted to share my passion with a new community. This will be my first time hosting. This will be an outdoor event as long as the weather permits. I have a very large deck that overlooks Five Mile Lake.
