Seth Carico sings the Torreador Aria from Bizet's Carmen:
The opera has become the most performed new opera of the 21st century and has upcoming productions in Copenhagen, Washington D.C., Kansas City, Vancouver and Kentucky.
Based on Sister Helen Prejean’s memoir that inspired the Oscar-winning movie of the same name, it recounts her courageous struggle to provide spiritual guidance to a condemned Louisiana murderer in the months leading up to his execution.
Carico's other big debut this season is as Gunther in Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen in April 2017 at his home base of the Deutsche Opera Berlin. Other operas that he's performing with the company include Verdi's Don Carlo, Britten's Billy Budd and Death in Venice, Giordano's Andrea Chenier, Wagner's Tannhäuser and Leporello in Mozart's Don Giovanni.
