Carmen

Wednesday, April 1st, 2020 @ 19:30 - 22:00

After its successful season of Madama Butterfly and Tosca last year, Russian State Opera returns to delight you with the powerful and dramatic production of Carmen – feel the thrill of fiery passion, jealousy and violence of 19th century Seville Bizet’s most popular opera.

Carmen tells the story of the downfall of Don Jose, a naive soldier who falls head over heels in love with Carmen, a seductive, free-spirited femme fatale.

The infatuated Don Jose abandons his childhood sweetheart and neglects his military duties, only to lose the fickle Carmen to the glamorous toreador Escamillo.

The music of Carmen has been widely acclaimed for the brilliance of its melodies, enthralling atmosphere and orchestration, as well as for the skill with which Bizet musically represented the emotions and suffering of his characters.

The Toreador Song is among the best known of all operatic arias. The rich and colourful vigour of the gypsies’ scenes will have you on the edge of your seat, the vibrancy, enthusiasm and intensity of the performances will reverberate long after the final curtain has fallen.

Love, treachery, passion and betrayal, Carmen has it all.
