If you love opera, then you want to make sure you have your tickets booked to see Carmen – The Opera which is heading to Joburg Theatre in June 2018!
The age old take of a gypsy determined to live life on her own terms – whatever her fate may be is one that has captivated audiences for years. The passionate triangle of the world-wise gypsy woman, the jealous soldier willing to lose everything for her reciprocated love, and the toreador that will win her heart is one of the world’s most loved operas.
This masterpiece blends passion, seduction, jealousy, betrayal and even a little law-breaking, all set to one of the most famous scores ever composed. Carmen features a local and international cast with seasoned and young and upcoming opera singers. Mezzo-soprano Linette van der Merwe stars as the strong-willed and seductive gypsy who destroys the naïve, lovesick soldier Don José. José is played by Stéfan Louw, well-known tenor on opera stages in South Africa and abroad.
