Opera Australia’s Carmen
Tue 27 July 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Opera Australia’s Carmen at Cairns Performing Arts Centre
Event by Opera Australia, Ticketlink and Cairns Performing Arts Centre.
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 and a live chamber orchestra. 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.
Directed by Matthew Barclay.
