“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.
