La Tragedie de Carmen

La Tragedie de CarmenT1370037091
La tragédie de Carmen is opera at its most powerful, a raw and visceral adaptation of Bizet's 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; Carmen's Habanera and Seguidilla, Don Jose's Flower Song, and Escamillo's swaggering Toreador Song. Directed by Andrew Steggall, conducted by Gareth Hancock, and featuring Leah Marian Jones sings the title role, with Sinead Campbell as Micaëla, David Curry as Don Jose, and Nicholas Garrett as Escamillo
