ABOUT THE SHOW
Join OperaHub for a trip to sunny Spain this January as we present SPANISH SIRENS, featuring Ravel's 1911 one-act opera L'Heure Espagnole along with excerpts from Carmen, everyone's favorite "Spanish" opera...
Set in Toledo, Spain, Ravel's marvelously mischievous farce L'Heure Espagnole chronicles the adventures of a clockmaker's flirtatious wife — and her many lovers — during her husband's afternoon away. Featuring a hysterical plot and memorable characters, it's a true trip — and, clocking in at just under one hour, one everyone should take!
In keeping with OperaHub's ambition to make opera accessible, we're pairing L'Heure Espagnole with excerpts from Carmen, another opera written by a French composer about a Spanish seductress at a time when the exotic allure of Spain (although just over the Pyrenees) fueled the imaginations of French composers.
The Factory Theatre is located in the Piano Craft Guild building at 791 Tremont Street in Boston's South End. The theater is accessible through the parking lot behind the building, located off of Northampton Street. Click here for directions by car and on public transportation.
