The most seductive opera ever written
“Hot-blooded, a joy” The Independent
“Impassioned and sultry” The Observer
“Red hot passion” Birmingham Evening Mail
Directed by Ellen Kent, this traditionally staged new production, set in Seville and reflecting a Goya painting, with fountains, flowers, orange trees and even a rescue donkey, guarantees an evening of passion and romance.
Starring international mezzo soprano Nadia Stoianova, whose portrayals of Carmen have won rapturous reviews, and featuring the full Chisinau National Philharmonic orchestra and chorus.
Carmen features some of the most evocative and best-loved melodies in opera, including perhaps the best-known baritone aria of all; The Toreador’s Song.
Sung in French with English surtitles.
