14-17 January 2021

According to the latest announcement of social restriction measures by the government, audiences are prohibited from entering performance venues with immediate effect. Foreseeing the measure would not ease away in near future, all our preparation work for Carmen will be seriously affected. Opera Hong Kong has no choice but to cancel the performance. We regret deeply the decision and share your disappointment. We are very grateful for your support and look forward to seeing you again in our future programmes.

“I was born free and free I shall die!” Carmen, always iconic, still speaks to us.

Riding on the great success of Carmen in 2018 with five performances completely sold out, Opera Hong Kong will revive this magnificent production in early 2021. Featuring a stellar cast, Carmen is given a modern sheen with an innovative nested rotating set embellished with creative lighting.

Combining Spanish passion with French lyricism, the timeless classic unveils a story of passion, destiny but above all freedom — liberty! — and one unforgettable woman who lives and loves by it, a man consumed by her, and the woman who tries to save him. The unforgettable music stays in the mind and rhythms pound in the heart for days afterwards.

An Opera in FOUR Acts
