DetailsLa tragÃ©die de Carmen
is opera at its most powerful, a raw and visceral adaptation of Bizetâs most popular work. Peter Brook and his collaborators have crafted a concentrated night of theatre that focuses on the fatal relationships between the gypsy, soldier, village girl and bullfighter. The score retains all of the most famous musical moments of the original; Carmenâs Habanera and Seguidilla, Don Joseâs Flower Song, and Escamilloâs swaggering Toreador Song. Directed by Andrew Steggall, conducted by Gareth Hancock, and featuring Leah Marian Jones sings the title role, with Sinead Campbell as MicaÃ«la, David Curry as Don Jose, and Nicholas Garrett as Escamillo Brook collaborated with composer Marius Constant to create a journey through much of Bizet's memorable music, including Carmen's ?Habanera', Escamillo's Toreador Song and Don Jos?'s Flower Song, together with powerful new passages.
