The National Fine Arts Institute (INBA) will present a new production of the opera “Carmen” by Georges Bizet Sunday Sept. 25 and Tuesday Sept. 27 in the main auditorium of the Palacio de Bellas Artes. The opera had its opening Thursday Sept. 22.

Ginger Costa-Jackson performs the tile role of Carmen, José Luis Ordóñez is Don José and Genero Salvarán is Escamillo.

“Carmen,” considered one of most well-loved operas of all time, it is one of the most popular works with the Mexican public. The public will be able to witness the passionate story of love and jealousy starring the Italian Costa-Jackson. Currently one of the most sought-after mezzo-sopranos, she gives life to the seductive Carmen. Moreover, the performance has the participation of Ordóñez and Salvarán, competing in their roles for the love of the gypsy.

Staging and scenary are under the direction of Leopoldo Falcón, considered one of the most outstanding Spanish-speaking directors in the international realm and who learned from Enrique Alonso Cachirulo the secrets of the genre of Spanish light opera.

“Carmen,” which premiered in 1875, is highlighted by the music of the Bellas Artes’ Orchestra and Chorus under the direction of Srba Dinic and Carlos Aransay. The Agape Choral Group directed by Carlos Alberto Vásquez, also performs.

With new stage designs by Adrián Martínez Frausto and soloist costumes by Emilio Rebollar, the passionate story, divided into four acts, also features choreography by Erika Suárez, lighting by Laura Rode and makeup by Mario Zarazúa and Maricela Estrada.

The rest of the cast giving life to the opera includes Oralia Castro as Mercedes, Rosario Aguilar as Frasquita, Alberto Albarrán as Dancairo, Oscar Santana as Remendado, Martín Luna as Morales and Arturo López Castillo as Zúñiga. The libretto is in French and was written by Ludovic Halévy and Henri Meilhac.

The opera will be performed Sept. 25 at 5 p.m. and Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. in the Sala Principal (main auditorium) of the Palacio de Bellas Artes. Tickets range from 185 to 770 pesos.
