Riverside Theatres Presents Opera Australia | Carmen

17 June 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm AEST

CARMEN
By Georges Bizet

Directed by Matthew Barclay
Set & Costumes Design by Anna Cordingley
Lighting Design by Paul Jackson


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, live chamber orchestra and a children’s chorus drawn from the local community. 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.

PERFORMED WITH A LIVE CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
