stars of the Royal Opera House's Jette Parker Young Artists
Programme perform Peter Brook’s radical reworking of Georges Bizet’s opera
in an intimate setting.
Don José falls in love with the gypsy Carmen. But she grows tired of his
jealousy, especially after she meets the toreador Escamillo. In this intimate chamber opera for just four
singers, new spoken dialogue makes the text feel more immediate and stripped
back to its core. The result is a powerful piece of theatre coloured by
Bizet’s wonderful music.
Director Gerard Jones creates a new production
of Brook’s adaptation in the suitably atmospheric space of Wilton’s Music Hall,
for the young stars of the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme – following on
from their sell-out success with Handel’s Oreste in the same
venue in 2016.
