CARMEN Runs July 17-30

CO_Carmen logoCARMEN
Cincinnati Opera
July 17-30
Summit Park [Blue Ash]

If desire is the spark of love, then Carmen has ignited a thousand infernos. Opera’s quintessential femme fatale, Carmen shows us she’s that and so much more—a fearless, flirtatious force of nature who refuses to answer to anyone but herself. Her confidence attracts the attention of Don José, whose passion turns to obsession, then spirals into madness. When José threatens Carmen with death should she refuse him, she chooses freedom over all. Featuring some of opera’s best-known melodies, from the sultry “Habanera” to the rousing “Toreador Song,” Carmen is an ageless ode to one woman’s fierce independence. Sung in French with projected English translation. Approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.

  • Sat, July 17 at 8:30pm
  • Thu, July 22 at 8:30pm
  • Mon, July 26 at 8:30pm

RESIDUE to Open at The Carnegie Galleries

Local and National Artists Return to Historic Exhibition Space

COVINGTON, KY –The Carnegie is pleased to welcome patrons and artists back into the galleries on June 17, 2021 with the exhibition RESIDUE, guest curated by Maria Seda-Reeder. The twelve artists in RESIDUE represent this region alongside artists working across the United States.

Seda-Reeder is a curator who frequently highlights artists who operate in the social sphere and create objects and situations that encourage interaction and community engagement. RESIDUE focuses on works that invite us to co-create meaning and enter a dialogue with images in the galleries. The work done by artists in their studio is completed by thoughtful participation by the viewers. As such, that gesture is passed on from artist to patron and from patron out into the world.

“Maria is a smart and talented curator working so hard to provide opportunities for artists to build on their ideas and present new bodies of work,” said Carnegie Exhibitions Director, Matt Distel. “The Carnegie is always looking for ways to create a compelling environment for artists and guests alike. Working with Maria ensures that this will happen and I am so pleased to see this exhibition as the way that the galleries re-open from a long period of renovation and quarantine.”
