Opera sung in French with English subtitles
Carmen is the best-known work by French composer Georges Bizet, and one of the most famous operas in the entire art form.
The young soldier Don José intends to marry Micaëla, a girl from his home village. But when he meets the sensual and fiercely independent Carmen, he sacrifices everything to be with her; with devastating consequences.
Australian Director Barrie Kosky is one of the world’s most sought-after opera directors. In 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.
