Minot will have a fiery opera this September: "Carmen." The titular character will be portrayed by highly accomplished Sara Petrocelli, who is under contract to New York's Metropolitan Opera. The dark-haired, dark-eyed Petrocelli has performed "Carmen" before and it is one of her favorite roles. The role's range is in the mezzo-soprano (middle-soprano) voice and calls for a lot of flash and verve - qualities that come naturally to the woman who will be Minot's diva on Sept. 12 and 14. Her arias include some of the greatest hits in opera, including the "Habanera."
