In a large scale outdoor arena spectacular, Bizet's indisputable masterpiece Carmen is staged with all the trimmings, performed by over 150 singers and musicians. The historic cricket grounds, the scene of many epic conflicts, plays host to the loves, betrayals, celebrations and tragedies of one of opera's greatest stories.

Carmen is a bold, daring, working class woman, living life as a free spirit. She sets her sights on Escamillo, inciting jealousy in her powerful lover Don José. Hatching a plan to end this epic love triangle and gain her freedom, will the fiery Carmen outsmart Don José or will her betrayal lead to shocking consequences?

Australia's finest singers bring to life this memorable story through arias such as the famous Habanera and the Toreador's Song with tremendous local talent from the West Australian Opera Chorus, the WAO Children's Chorus featuring the next generation of rising stars and the full might of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.

SUNG IN FRENCH WITH ENGLISH SURTITLES. DIALOGUE IN ENGLISH.

West Australian Opera presents Carmen in association with Perth Festival. This season is supported by the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand {RISE) Fund - an Australian Government initiative.
