CARMEN

AN OPERA AUSTRALIA PRODUCTION

Carmen is enigmatic and elusive: a femme fatale you can’t forget.

She captivates Don José with her sensual Habanera and he abandons everything to possess her. But Carmen won’t be owned and finds herself a new lover: the dashing bullfighter Escamillo.

Don José’s jealousy is untameable, Escamillo’s appeal is strong, and in a gripping finale, Carmen is destined to fight for her life. This new production highlights the colour and vibrancy of postcard Spain, with vintage-inspired costumes it evokes an era of bikers and shady police in a post-war setting of teen angst and rebellion.

 

Sung in French with English surtitles.
Performed with a live chamber orchestra.
