Carmen - Royal Opera House Encore

Carmen - Royal Opera House Encore

Details

Carmen (encore) streaming from the Royal Opera House, this spring at the Kirkgate Centre

One of the most famous operas in the world is given fresh point of view in this highly physical production.

Carmen is the best-known work by French composer Georges Bizet, and numbers such as the Habanera and the Toreador Song have permeated the popular consciousness as little else has.

The opera’s heady combination of passion, sensuality and violence initially proved too much for the stage, and it was a critical failure on its 1875 premiere. Bizet died shortly after, and never learned of the spectacular success his Carmen would achieve: the opera has been performed more than five hundred times at Covent Garden alone.

Australian Barrie Kosky is one of the world’s most sought-after opera directors, whose Royal Opera debut with Shostakovich’s The Nose in 2016 was greeted with delight. For Carmen he has devised a far-from-traditional version, incorporating music written by Bizet for the score but not usually heard, and giving a new voice to the opera’s endlessly fascinating central character.

*Sung in French with English subtitles
