Irish National Opera presents: Carmen

Irish National Opera presents: Carmen

Thursday, 26 March 2020, 7.30pm

Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Dublin
22–28 March

Opera’s great, independent, sexual woman, the gypsy Carmen. Her friends and enemies from a cigarette factory. Her lovers, high and low. A naive corporal and the good girl from home. A handsome bullfighter. Smugglers. Jealousy, and a fatal struggle. Carmen, the most popular French opera, with some of the most alluring arias ever, has it all.

Sung in French with English surtitles.

Running time is approx. 3hrs 30mins including 2 intervals.

An upright soldier. On duty far from home. The femme fatale from the wrong side of the tracks. Love at first sight. A walk on the wild side. Criminality, a handsome rival, and a breaking point that leads to tragedy in the scorching Spanish sun. The colourful arias and choruses of Bizet’s Carmen tell it all with irresistible, unforgettable musical panache.
