ROH: Carmen



A thrilling new production of Bizet’s passionate opera from visionary director Barrie Kosky, starring Anna Goryachova. Award-winning director Barrie Kosky provides a refreshing perspective on this well-known opera. He explores Carmen’s ever-changing nature – marked by her series of contrasting costumes – and her vitality through dance. The pre-recorded voice of a narrator (perhaps Carmen herself) ensures that we experience the whole story from her perspective, and the production’s unique performing edition (by Michael Rot) offers a chance for audience members to hear music Bizet omitted from the opera’s first performances.
