Tickets for the opera "Carmen"

“Carmen will never surrender, born free, free will she dies” cries Bizet’s heroine to Don José at the end of the opera. This irrepressible freedom, coupled with a need to live ever more intensely on a knife-edge, is present in Calixto Bieito’s production as in no other. Of Mérimée’s character, Bieito’s Carmen retains her thoroughly Iberian contours and the burning temperament of a woman who lives by small-time trafficking.

Libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy after the novel of the same name by Prosper Mérimée

Musical Director: Tugan Sokhiev
Stage Director: Alexei Borodin
Set Designer: Stanislav Benediktov
