In addition to a number of recorded and simulcast offerings of opera-related performances this year, the Southampton Cultural Center will present a live performance of “La Tragedie de Carmen” by the Stony Brook Opera next Thursday at 7 p.m.
Based on the opera by Bizet, it will be directed by Joachim Schamberger and conducted by Timothy Long. This adaptation, by Marius Constant, Peter Brook and Jean-Claude Carriere, won a 1984 Tony Award for outstanding achievement in musical theater. It promises a more intense and immediate story of the doomed heroine. Tickets cost $20, $10 for students, and can be reserved through southamptonculturalcenter.org.
At Guild Hall, the last opera in Wagner’s Ring Cycle will be shown on Saturday at noon as part of the Met: Live in HD series. “Gotterdammerung,” starring Deborah Voigt as Brunnhilde and Jay Hunter Morris as Siegfried, promises a cataclysmic climax to the story of the two lovers doomed by fate. Fabio Luisi will conduct. The simulcast screening costs $22, $20 for Guild Hall members. Tickets are available through the Guild Hall Web site or at the box office up to three hours before curtain.
Back in Southampton, the Parrish Art Museum will continue its Opera and Ballet in Cinema series with the Royal Opera’s production of “Il Trittico” by Puccini on Sunday at 2 p.m. It is a collection of three brief operas and includes both heart-wrenching drama and madcap farce. Terrie Sultan, the director of the Parrish and an opera enthusiast who worked with Sarah Caldwell, the conductor, will introduce the program. Tickets cost $17, or $14 for Parrish members.
