Mill City Summer Opera To Showcase Audrey Babcock As ‘Carmen’

The Mill City Summer Opera will kick off a summer production of Bizet’s “Carmen” at the Milly City Ruin Courtyard starting on July 13, 2018.

The production, which will be directed by Fenlon Lamb, will star Audrey Babcock as the title character with Adam Diegel as Don José and Karen Slack as Micaëla. Luis Orozco stars as Escamillo. The production runs through July 24.

This production represents Lamb’s first production with the MCSO. Babcock is a veteran to the title role, performing it over 100 times and earning rave reviews. Diegel is a veteran with the MCSO, having performed with the company in its 2014 “Tosca.” Orozco performed with the company last year in “Maria de Buenos Aires.”

The company will also showcase “Carmen for Young Audiences” in a morning performance on July 18. The shortened version of the famed work will be geared for children and will feature Nadia Fayed in the title role; Fayed will also perform in the main production, though not as Carmen.

In sum, there will be eight performances of the opera, with the final showcase on July 24, 2018.
