Audiences were recently offered a unique glimpse into The Royal Opera's new production of Carmen during an Insight event which is now available to watch on demand.
Featuring members of the cast and the creative team, the event featured performance extracts of Bizet's well-known opera, as well as interviews with director Barrie Kosky, conductor Jakub Hrůša and star Anna Goryachova (Carmen). The event was presented by Flora Willson.
Following his success last Season with The Nose, Kosky returns to Covent Garden with a highly physical production of Carmen which was originally created for Frankfurt Opera. His is a far-from-traditional take on the classic, incorporating music written by Bizet for the score but not usually heard, and giving a new voice to the opera’s endlessly fascinating central character.
Carmen runs 6 February-16 March 2018. Tickets are still available.
The production will be relayed live to cinemas around the world on 6 March 2018. Find your nearest cinema and sign up to our mailing list.
