THE ROYAL OPERA | SUNDAY, APRIL 22 • NOON
The best-known work by French composer Georges Bizet, and one of the most famous operas in history, this heady combination of passion, sensuality and violence was ahead of its time in 1875, and Bizet did not live to see its ultimate, spectacular success. Staged by Australian director Barrie Kosky and conducted by Jakub Hrusa, this adventurous production stars Anna Goryachova in the title role, with Francesco Meli as Don José, Anett Fritsch as Micaëla and Kostas Smoriginas as Escamillo. This far-from-traditional production includes Bizet music not usually included. Sung in French with English subtitles. Anticipated running time is 200 minutes, including intermission.
