3 performances at Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House
This vibrant production of Bizet's opera features gypsy girls and bullfighting boys in eye-popping colours. There are smugglers in suits, parades and punches, lust and loathing aplenty. And underneath those irresistible Spanish tunes, the dark undercurrent of fate pulses. Carmen knows she is dancing with death.
John Bell's production is a bold look at the intense relationships at the heart of Bizet's famous opera. It hones in on the wild love that promises freedom, while binding the lovers in an unbreakable web of fate.
The vivacious Rinat Shaham returns as opera's favourite femme fatale, with Argentine tenor Marcelo Puente as Don Jose and Michael Honeyman as Escamillo.
