Winchester Musicals and Opera Society presents Carmen

Wed 18/11/15 - Sat 21/11/15 7:30 pm

A passionate tale of lust, seduction and betrayal, no other opera boasts as popular a following as Bizet’s Carmen.      

The action pivots around Carmen, a gypsy who has the power to seduce any man who suits her fancy. Don José, a corporal, throws honour aside in pursuit of Carmen. Carmen soon casts off her ardent lover for the handsome toreador Escamillo. Jealously and passion seal Carmen’s fate in one of opera’s most memorable conclusions.

Bizet’s dazzling score evokes all the sounds and sizzling atmosphere through some of the opera’s most famous melodies.

Visually this will be like no other Carmen ever staged. Sung in English - a perfect introduction to opera.

Saturday matinee at 2.30pm
