opera australia 2020 National tour

Caught between her desire for love and a longing for freedom, Carmen faces an impossible choice.  She’s enigmatic and elusive: a femme fatale you can’t forget.  Captivating Don José with her sensual Habanera, he abandons everything to pursue her.  But Carmen won’t be owned and finds herself a new lover: the dashing bullfighter Escamillo. Don José’s jealousy is untameable and in a gripping finale, Carmen is destined to fight for her life.

Highlighting the colour and vibrancy of postcard Spain

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 local children’s chorus to perform the world’s most popular opera. Hear the famous Habanera and the Toreador Song when you join us for Opera Australia’s 25th Anniversary tour of Bizet’s Carmen.
