Description

Opera in 4 acts by Georges Bizet by the Opéra 2001

Let yourself be carried away by the power and timeless beauty of the Opera Carmen, on Friday, July 5, 2024 at the Carcassonne Festival! An iconic work that has captivated hearts for generations: immerse yourself in the fiery world of forbidden love and wild passions.

“In the 1820s, Carmen, a young and pretty gypsy employed at the cigar factory in Seville, threw a flower at the Dragon brigadier named Don José, which she bit….

“If I love you, beware!”. During a quarrel between the cigar makers, the armed force intervenes and Don José yielding to the charm of Carmen, favors his flight. Imprisoned because of this complacency, the brigadier, once released, compromises his career by fighting with his superior, leaves the right path and joins his beloved accomplice smugglers in the nearby mountain. However, Carmen now loves another man, Escamillo, a famous bullfighter, and announces it to Don José… Despite the pleas of the latter, Carmen remains insensitive and rejects him with harsh words. Finally, close to the arena where Escamillo triumphs, Don José kills Carmen.”

Soloists, choir and orchestra of the Compagnie Lyrique Opéra 2001.
With the participation of the Spanish Ballet of Murcia.
