Carmen - Opera Australia's 25th Anniversary Tour

Carmen

This lavish new production of Bizet’s Carmen highlights the colour and vibrancy of postcard Spain, with vintage-inspired costumes that evoke an era of bikers and shady police in a post-war setting of teen angst and rebellion.

Caught between her desire for love and a longing for freedom, Carmen faces an impossible choice: Don José or the dashing bullfighter Escamillo. She’s enigmatic and elusive: a femme fatale you can’t forget.

Some of Australia’s finest opera singers assemble with a chamber orchestra and local children’s chorus to perform the world’s most popular opera. Hear the famous Habanera and the Toreador Song when you join us for the premiere performance of Opera Australia’s 25th Anniversary tour of Bizet’s Carmen.

Duration: 155 minutes, including a 20-minute interval

Sessions:

Friday 14 May, 7.30pm - 10.05pm

Saturday 15 May, 7.30pm - 10.05pm

Note: Sung in French with English subtitles.
