Opera Australia - Carmen on Sydney Harbour


About this Film

Set on a stage suspended above the water on Sydney Harbour, this sizzling outdoor staging of Bizet's famous love story - 'Carmen' tells the story of the naive soldier Don Jose who abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts the army when he falls under the alluring gypsy's spell. When he loses her love to the dashing toreador Escamillo, the scene is set for jealousy and vengeance.

Bizet's seductive melodies and fiery Spanish rhythms conjure a world of desire, defiance and doom, in some of the world's best loved music, including the arias 'Habanera,' 'Seguidilla,' 'Flower Song' and 'Toreador Song.'

Israeli born mezzo-soprano Rinat Shaham, one of the world's most acclaimed Carmens, performs the title role.

An excellent production which really captures the spirit of Bizet's music. Shaham is a voluptuous & sexy Carmen. Dimitri Popov sings beautifully in the very demanding final scene
