CARMEN ON THE LAKE
Thursday 14th September
FROM LAKE CONSTANCE, BREGENZ - AUSTRIA
Performed on the spectacular water stage of Lake Constance in Bregenz (Austria), George Bizet's Carmen is a story of passion, destiny and obsession. The French composer's opera is most famous for its Spanish melodies, including the Flower Song, Habanera and the Toreador Song.
On 14 September, experience Carmen like never before – recorded live on the floating stage during the Bregenz Festival. As with their previous spectacular productions, you can expect the staging of this classic tale to have an extravagantly original and innovative design, with the waters of the lake being used as an extension of the stage.
This production of Carmen will be directed by Kasper Holten, the former Director of Opera at the Royal Opera House in London, with the set designed by the British artist Es Devlin
