Carmen

Concert or Performance

3 Sep 2020 to 5 Sep 2020

One of the greatest operas of all time.

Caught between her desire for love and a longing for freedom, Carmen faces an impossible choice. 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.

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

Sung in French with English surtitles.
