SHERMAN, TEXAS-Austin College and the Sherman Symphony Orchestra join together to present a concert version of the opera Carmen as the final performance of the 2012-2013 Community Series season on Saturday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m. in Kidd-Key Auditorium in Sherman. The Community Series website calls the production a crowd favorite and "never a more seductive and memorable opera, filled with recognizable tunes."

The orchestra and its conductor Daniel Dominick of the Austin College faculty are joined by the combined choruses of Austin College, Southeastern Oklahoma State University, and the Children's Chorus of the Sherman Symphony to bring the opera to life. Featured soloists from the local community will be highlighted in the production, including Wayne Crannell as Don Jose, Marisan Corzino as Carmen, Sylvia Rivers as Micaela, and Justin Duncan as the Toreador.

Carmen, one of the most frequently performed operas in the world, is written in French and projected text in English provides context for the familiar music. The four-act opera was written by French composer Georges Bizet and tells the story of the downfall of Don Jose, a na? soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen. The opera focuses on themes of life, immortality, and lawlessness and enjoys wide acclaim for its melody, harmony, atmosphere and orchestration.

Tickets for Carmen are $10 for adults and students are free with ID and may be purchased online at or by calling 903.813.2251. For more information about the event or the Community Series, email
