Take-One: Carmen

October 11, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Spend an afternoon with the cast and artistic team of Bizet’s Carmen for a behind the scenes look at the production and at the TV Studio in Alaska Public Media’s Broadcast Center!

This event is an all-new take on previous seasons’ Lunch with the Stars (which will no longer be offered in 2015-16). We’ve partnered with Alaska Public Media to bring you a fresh updated way to meet & mingle with the Stars! We’ve lowered the ticket price too, so please come join us for all the fun.

Enjoy bistro-style seating and delectable catered fare with a concert and an ‘up-close & personal’ panel discussion with the stars. Learn about their lives and career paths which led them to Anchorage Opera. Discover interesting tidbits about Carmen, its plot, history and thrill to excerpts from the production performed by the cast. Q & A from the audience and more interactive fun at this first time event for Anchorage Opera.

A reception afterwards in the studio is your chance to mix & mingle with the cast!

And when you “Sponsor an Artist” you cover the costs of their reception fare and receive special recognition from Anchorage Opera and the Artist personally. BRAVO!
