La Tragédie de Carmen

November 14 | 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

| £15 - £30

THE ROYAL OPERA: LA TRAGÉDIE DE CARMEN
WILTON’S MUSIC HALL, LONDON

Bizet, adapted by Peter Brook La Tragédie de Carmen

Jette Parker Young Artists Royal Opera House
Southbank Sinfonia
James Hendry 
conductor

The youthful stars of the Royal Opera House’s Jette Parker Young Artists Programme combine with Southbank Sinfonia to perform Peter Brook’s radical reworking of Georges Bizet’s opera.

The soldier Don José falls in love with the gypsy Carmen, but she grows tired of his jealousy, especially after she meets the toreador Escamillo.  In this intimate chamber opera for just four singers, new spoken dialogue makes the text feel more immediate and stripped back to its core. The result is a powerful piece of theatre coloured by Bizet’s wonderful music.

Director Gerard Jones creates a new production of Brook’s adaptation in the suitably atmospheric and intimate space of Wilton’s Music Hall.

Tickets £15 – £30 | Wilton’s Music Hall Box Office
