Opera screening – Carmen by Bizet
September 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
As part of the BSM’s ‘Opera-Screening Series’ this month we are delighted to present the well-known melodies and rythms of Bizet’s immortal opera in four acts set in southern Spain. The story revolves around the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen. The habanera, the seguidilla, big choirs and sparkling colours will give you a feeling of being transported to the sunny plains of Spain.
The streaming will be preceeded by a short introduction to Bizet and Carmen by Jonas Olsson, voice faculty at the BSM.
Duration is approx 170 minutes including an intermission. Sung in French with English subtitles.
Free admission! Recommended for 12 years and above.
