An Opera Australia production
The femme fatale you can’t forget.
By Georges Bizet
This new production of one of the world’s most popular operas is full of colour and vibrancy.
Carmen sings her sensual Habanera, and lures Don José into her world. He gives up everything to follow her. But Carmen won’t be owned, and finds herself a new lover — the dashing bullfighter Escamillo. Fierce passion, jealousy, and a gripping fight for life ensue.
Experience the thrilling Spanish colour and rhythms of Bizet’s vibrant score with Opera Australia’s singers, live chamber orchestra and a children’s chorus drawn from their local community. Sung in French with English surtitles, hear the famous Habanera and the Toreador Song when you join them for Opera Australia’s 25th Anniversary tour of Bizet’s Carmen.
