Russian State Opera: Bizet’s Carmen
28 February @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Set in 19th-century Seville, naïve soldier Don José falls head over heels in love with Carmen, a seductive, free-spirited Roma woman. Infatuated, he abandons his childhood sweetheart and neglects his military duties to be with her, but Carmen’s head is turned with the arrival of glamorous bull-fighter Escamillo. Who will the fickle femme fatale pick – and at what cost?
From Carmen’s seductive ‘Habanera’ to Escamillo’s triumphal ‘Toreador Song’, Bizet’s masterful music creates an enthralling atmosphere of tense and fiery passion, where jealousy and violence threaten to erupt at any moment. Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a 30-piece live orchestra, you won’t fail to be thrilled by Russian State Opera’s powerful and dramatic production.
A short note on safety
Your safety and comfort continues to be our top priority. Event capacities will be limited to maintain space in the auditorium, while all Coro staff and volunteers will continue to wear face coverings. Currently, as a mandatory condition of entry all audience members will need to wear facemasks, other than when having a drink, if you are medically exempt, or a child under the age of 12. We also encourage all visitors to keep a safe distance from others, use hand sanitisers and wash hands regularly, and check in with the NHS Test and Trace app if able to do so.
