Bizet's indisputable masterpiece Carmen is staged with all the trimmings, performed by over 150 singers and musicians, in this spectacular event. The historic WA cricket ground, 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 this memorable story to life 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.
Experience the beauty of this work by attending Esperance Civic Centre for the Lotterywest livestream screening direct from the WACA Ground

Carmen is supported by Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund - an Australian Government initiative
