Opera Australia presents Carmen
Thursday, 19 August, 2021 @ 7:30 PM – 10:05 PM
Carmen is the femme fatale you can’t forget
In Bizet’s famous opera, she sings her sensual Habanera and lures Don José into her world. He gives up everything to follow her. But Carmen’s wandering eye has already found a new lover: the dashing bullfighter Escamillo.
Don José’s jealousy is fierce. Escamillo’s passion is strong. In a gripping finale, Carmen must face her fate.
Experience the thrilling Spanish colour and rhythms of Bizet’s vibrant score with Opera Australia’s singers and a live chamber orchestra. This new production includes gorgeous sets and vintage-inspired costumes. You can hear classics such as the Habanera and the Toreador Song just as Bizet meant them — loud, live and completely unamplified.
An Opera Australia and West Australian Opera production directed by Matthew Barclay. Presented by Arts Margaret River with support from Margaret River HEART.
Sung in French with English surtitles. Performed with a live chamber orchestra.
Special VIP ticket includes drinks and canapes pre-show and during intermission (upstairs mezzanine floor) plus premium seating. Limited to 35 tickets. Thanks to Leeuwin Estate for sponsoring the VIP wines.
