Never miss another 'Ellen Kent International' show
Carmen: Ellen Kent International
Ellen Kent’s production of Bizet's Carmen, the most seductive opera ever written, is performed by the Moldovan National Opera and the Moldovan National Philharmonic Orchestra.
The dazzling production, set in Seville, and reflecting a Goya painting, with fountains, flowers and orange trees, guarantees an evening of passion and romance with unforgettable melodies and perhaps the best known baritone aria of all, The Toreador’s Song.
Carmen is the story of a bewitching gypsy girl whose tantalizing beauty lures a soldier to desertion and which ultimately leads to her murder.
Featuring international soloists mezzo soprano Nadia Stoianova as Carmen and tenor Sorin Lupu as Don Jose, with a majestic Andalucian stallion.
Sung in French with English surtitles.
Producer Ellen Kent and her company Opera & Ballet International have been responsible for bringing to the UK and Eire much of the Eastern European opera seen here in the last seven years.
From her base at the Chatham Historic Dockyard, she has been working with the Chisinau National Opera since 1996 and last year the two companies signed an exclusive five-year contract, believed to be the first such contract between a major foreign national opera company and a British production company.
