Reimagines Carmen's card scene as a political endurance operatic performance piece. Audiences are invited to drop in at any time for a reading, or to experience the work.

During the course of over 3 hours, mezzo Stephen Chen sings Carmen's card scene continuously 69 times while reading our collective destiny through tarot cards -- except the tarot imagery has been replaced by logos of corporations/agencies pervading our everyday lives that have destroyed the environment/people through their actions and policies.
