MET Opera: Carmen
Sun 3 March at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Live performance on screen – The fiery depiction of a woman who craves love but stirs obsession and jealousy along the way is one of the most popular operas of all the time.
Carmen attracts opera lovers and newcomers alike for familiar, sweeping melodies that are as irresistible as the title character herself, who has also become a defining female cultural figure. The new modern staging by acclaimed English director Carrie Cracknell stars rising mezzo-soprano Aigul Akhmetshina in the title role. Maestro Daniele Rustioni conducts Bizet’s score, which includes some of the most famous arias in opera, such as the Habanera and the Toreador Song.
The What’s On calendar covers arts and heritage events happening across the NSW Central West in the local government areas of Bathurst Region, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Region, Oberon, Orange, Parkes and Weddin.
