Carmen

The Russian State Opera Presents Carmen – the most powerful, enjoyable and tuneful opera.

Music by Georges Bizet. Sung in French with English Surtitles.

“Always top-quality productions from this producer’ Stage Talk Magazine.

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.

After successful opera season of Madama Butterfly and Tosca last year, Russian State Opera is back to delight you with the powerful and dramatic production of Carmen. Feel the thrill and passion of love, jealousy and violence of 19th Century Seville in one of Bizet’s most popular pieces.

Carmen Opera tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who is seduced by Carmen, a seductive, free-spirited femme fatale. José abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts from his military duties, yet loses Carmen's love to the glamorous toreador Escamillo.

The music of Carmen has been widely acclaimed for its brilliance of melody, harmony, atmosphere and orchestration, and for the skill with which Bizet represented, musically, 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, and the vibrancy, enthusiasm and intensity of the performance will reverberate long after the final curtain.Love, treachery, passion and betrayal, Carmen has it all.
