Carmen - Russian State Opera 2022

  • > Dates and Times

22nd February 2022

Royal Hall

Carmen – the most powerful, enjoyable and tuneful opera.
Music by Georges Bizet. Sung in French with English Surtitles

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a live Orchestra numbering over 30 musicians

After its successful season of Madama Butterfly and Tosca, Russian State Opera returns to delight you with the powerful and dramatic production of Carmen - feel the thrill of fiery passion, jealousy and violence of 19th century Seville Bizet’s most popular opera.

Carmen tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who falls head over heels in love with Carmen, a seductive, free-spirited femme fatale. The infatuated Don José abandons his childhood sweetheart and neglects his military duties, only to lose the fickle Carmen to the glamorous toreador Escamillo.

The music of Carmen has been widely acclaimed for the brilliance of its melodies, enthralling atmosphere and orchestration, as well as for the skill with which Bizet musically represented 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, the vibrancy, enthusiasm and intensity of the performances will reverberate long after the final curtain has fallen.

Love, treachery, passion and betrayal, Carmen has it all.
