 The dazzling Ana María Martínez returns to Los Angeles as opera’s most delectable femme fatale. Nobody—not even a lover—can tame Carmen, who bursts into life onstage with an intoxicating whirl of thrilling choreography, vivid orchestrations and heart-stopping drama. Bizet’s unforgettable score is an endless parade of one great melody after the other, from the languid allure of Carmen’s sensual songs to the macho boasts of the dashing bullfighter.

In French with projected English translations.

  • Join us at iFly and get ready to be blown away – literally. Are you excited to visit iFLY?  First, let’s go over what to expect during your field trip.
  • You’ll start off by sitting in front of our state-of-the-art wind tunnel. One of iFLY’s science educators will give a brief introduce on to the science and engineering concepts involved in the wind tunnel. Be prepared to see some cool tricks!
  • Our class will head to our “lab” to do an activity. Each object flies at a different velocity, or speed, in the wind tunnel. You and your team will measure some different objects and try to predict how fast each object will fly in the tunnel.
  • Highly-trained flight instructors will lead you through a flight and safety training. You’ll learn all the basics that will allow you to have a safe and enjoyable flight. Next, it’s time to gear up and get ready to fly.
  • Every student will have the chance to fly in the wind tunnel! Your flight instructor will stay right there with you to make sure you’re safe and having the best flight possible. You’ll be experiencing all the physics for yourself!
