MYC performs “Carmen” with Opera Australia
Date: Tues 28 July 2020
Time: 7:30pm (running time 155 minutes)
Location: Bunjil Place Theatre
A cast of some of Australia’s finest opera singers assemble with a chamber orchestra and the Melbourne Youth Chorale's children’s chorus to perform the world’s most popular opera.
Caught between her desire for love and a longing for freedom, Carmen faces an impossible choice. She’s enigmatic and elusive: a femme fatale you can’t forget. Captivating Don José with her sensual Habanera, he abandons everything to pursue her. But Carmen won’t be owned and finds herself a new lover: the dashing bullfighter Escamillo. Don José’s jealousy is untameable and in a gripping finale, Carmen is destined to fight for her life.
This new production highlights the colour and vibrancy of postcard Spain, with vintage-inspired costumes it evokes an era of bikers and shady police in a post-war setting of teen angst and rebellion.
The performance is sung in French with English Surtitles.
