carmen iu opera patricia illera


January 05, 2016

Carmen, here we come! Patricia Illera will play the title role in Bizet’s acclaimed opera, an experience sure to present new challenges and opportunities for Patricia during her time in the United States.


Patricia Illera will play the role of Carmen at Indiana University’s prestigious Musical Arts Center (MAC). This production of Bizet’s magnificent opera will be directed by David Effron (Conductor) and Jeffrey Marc Buchman (Stage Director).


This opera in four acts showcases a cast of passionate characters, a brilliant musical score, and magical staging, a world where emotion, eroticism and desire lead to delusion and death.


At the end of next month, will take on a different tessitura with this new character, all while retaining the passion, strength and beauty that characterize her voice. This performance represents the art of opera at its finest.
