La Passion de Carmen: In the Arena

Then, in a collaboration with Patricia Norcia Dressage and High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, Opera Theater is proud to present La Passion de Carmen.

Imagine listening to highlights from one of the most beloved and tragic operas sung by amazing singers and interspersed with a troupe of choreographed dancing Spanish and Lusitano horses performing to more Carmen musical highlights—all in one of Connecticut’s best-known riding arenas. The one-act event will be presented on September 10 and 11, 2022 at 3:00PM, at the High Hopes Arena in Old Lyme.
