Performed by the Dnipro Opera, from Ukraine with music by Georges Bizet and sung in French with English Surtitles. Carmen features an impressive cast, accompanied by a live Orchestra numbering over 30 musicians.
Dnipro Opera has a long-standing heritage of top-quality opera productions, that are sure to delight opera lovers as they premier across the UK.
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.
Theatre Director Joanne Johnson says: “We’re pleased to be able to bring another high-quality opera to our stage. With its rich history and fantastic acoustics, the Tyne Theatre and Opera House is the perfect place to host this special performance. We can’t wait for the lucky audience to experience this powerful production.”
Tickets are already on sale, so book now to feel the thrill of fiery passion, jealousy, and violence of 19th century Seville Bizet’s most popular opera.
