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.
