About

Carmen – the most powerful, enjoyable, and tuneful opera

Music by Georges Bizet. Sung in French with English Subtitles

Performed by Dnipro Opera theatre, from Ukraine

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a live Orchestra numbering over 30 musicians.

After last season’s premier in the UK, we are delighted to bring back Dnipro Opera theatre from the Ukraine. This opera and ballet theatre has a long-standing heritage of top-quality opera productions, and we are excited to bring it back to the UK in our 2024 Opera Season.

Carmen - feel the thrill of fiery passion, jealousy, and violence of 19th century Seville in Bizet’s most popular opera.

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.
