For many, “Carmen” is the masterpiece that truly defines Opera – full of unforgettable music and high drama.

Bizet's “Carmen” tells the story of a captivating woman and her jealous lover who just won’t take no for an answer.

Mezzo-soprano Sarah Heltzel stars in the title role as the seductive gypsy. Critics have already taken notice, praising“potent star performances” and “rich, powerhouse voice.” Ms. Heltzel has previously appeared with the Wichita Grand Opera (WGO) as Maddalena in Rigoletto and as Princess Eboli in Don Carlo. Tenor Michael Wade Lee stars as Don José, Carmen’s obsessive lover. He returns to the WGO for the first time since starring in the title role of WGO’s 2011 Il Trovatore. Maestro Martin Mazik returns to the WGO to conduct this masterful work.

Broadway in Wichita brings BEAUTIFUL to ICT as part of their 2018-2019 season.

Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah.
