Carmen

Carmen is the femme fatale you can't forget.

In Bizet's famous opera, she sings her sensual Habanera and lures Don Jose 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 Jose'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 the Macquarie Conservatorium's Youth Chorus led by Vivienne Winther and Raelene Burn.

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.


Sung in French with English surtitles. Performed with a live chamber orchestra directed by Matthew Barclay.

ACT ONE + TWO:      1 hour 18 minutes
INTERVAL:                  20mins
