Carmen (2007)


by Georges Bizet
Following the sell-out success of The Barber of Seville in 2006, Melbourne Opera has assembled the same team of international director Hugh Halliday and young Melbourne designer Anna Cordingly for a new production of the most popular and dramatic opera of all time, Carmen.


Featuring a great cast mixing younger and established Victorian singers, Carmen will be performed in English bringing the drama right up to the audience at the Athenaeum Theatre.
