About The Event
On Mothers’ day weekend, Brook and Constant’s streamlined adaptation of Bizet’s masterpiece Carmen will be presented at the beautifully scenic Hanahan Amphitheater on the Goose Creek Reservoir. The production is conceived in the style of a 1930s radio drama, complete with narrators and a Foley sound effects artist. Featuring vocalists from premier opera houses and a live orchestra conducted by Wojciech Milewski, you won’t want to miss this powerfully theatrical performance. Join us early for food trucks and drink concessions starting at 6pm. Socially distanced seating is “bring your own” or you can preorder chairs in our VIP socially distant squares. A pre-show performance will be given by College of Charleston Opera and will feature excerpts of their recent presentation of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro conducted by Yuriy Bekker of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra.
