10 and 27 August see two staged performances of Bizet's classic story of a woman who drives men to madness.
This summer, while traditional opera venues like the Liceu and the Sabadell Opera are taking a break, Barcelona's Palau de la Música has become a refuge for lovers of the genre. Although the Palau was not designed to host opera performances and the stage is rather small, imagination can overcome any obstacle and this August the Palau is preparing staged performances of Verdi's ‘La Traviata’, and Bizet's iconic ‘Carmen’, with its intense story of toxic love set in a Hispanic ambience of gypsies, bullfighters and soldiers.
These two performances will feature stage direction by Jesús Fernàndez, and music by Orquestra Terrassa 48 conducted by Xavier Puig. The cast features four singers playing Carmen: Marta Valero, Angela Lorite, Michelle F. Cook and Numil Guerra – and at least two singers for the other secondary characters.
You'll find additional information on the Palau de la Música website, where you can also buy tickets.
