There are only a few more days to back Georges Bizet’s Carmen: The Graphic Novel Kickstarter which has plenty of added goodies including prints. In fact, AIPT can exclusively reveal just such a print by Ana Miralles. In fact, there is an impressive list of prints available in this Kickstarter campaign including one by Erica Henderson and Marguerite Sauvage.
Carmen is written by opera singer and director Alek Shrader and illustrated by artist P. Craig Russell and Aneke, and lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. Arizona Opera launched the Kickstarter campaign.
But wait, what’s Carmen: The Graphic Novel about?
Perhaps the most famous opera in history, Georges Bizet’s Carmen premiered in 1875 at the Opéra-Comique in Paris. The four-act opera, featuring a libretto written by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy and adapted from the novella by Prosper Mérimée, remains one of the most exciting and popular works in the repertoire. And now, nearly 150 years later, the story of Carmen is being adapted again — this time as CARMEN: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL
“It’s a thrill for Arizona Opera to share the work of this remarkable team of artists through the graphic novel format and the timeless story of Carmen,” said Joseph Specter, Arizona Opera’s President and General Director. “Throughout the pandemic, our company has constantly pursued novel approaches to connecting people through opera, when people need art and meaning the most. CARMEN: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL represents an amazing opportunity to extend that focus on innovation, impact, and community.”
