“Beware !” : Carmen invites herself into cinemas

Staged at the Royal Opera House, Georges Bizet's work will be screened live throughout France on May 1st.

THE Carmen of Georges Bizet will create the event at the beginning of May in a long list of French cinemas. The opportunity to rediscover the tragic destiny of the most famous bohemian in the world, and on the big screen, please.

It is one of the most sulphurous operas in the international repertoire, and the Royal Opera House, which produces this production, promises us a “hot new show”led by Italian Damiano Michielettoand of which we have a small glimpse in a trailer below :

AIgul Akhmetshina will portray Carmen, this bohemian cigar maker who turns all heads under the stifling sun of her Iberian town. “Indomitable spirit that flirts with destiny”she sets her sights on a soldier, Don José, who will be played by Piotr Beczala.

Through melodies that have become iconic, – “Love is a rebellious bird”the air of the Toreador, or even “Near the walls of Seville” – and performed by the Royal Opera House Orchestra conducted by Antonello Manacordathe two loving souls wander, tossed by a cruel destiny.

Around them, a host of secondary characters carrying high the colors of a Spain mythologized by the sets of Paolo Fantin and the costumes of Carla Teti. They will be performed by Olga Kulchynska, Kostas Smoriginas, Blaise Malaba, Grisha Martirosyan, Sarah Dufresne, Gabrielė Kupšytė, Pierre Doyen And Vincent Ordonneau.

The Royal Opera House, as if we were there, is for May 1st! THE Carmen by Micheletto will be screened on this date and live in numerous theaters in France and Navarre: in Paris (at the Publicis Cinéma, the Escurial, the Majestic Passy and the Arlequin), but also in Marseille (at the Cinéma Le Prado), Nice (at the Cinéma Variétés), Rouen (at the Kinépolis), Dijon (at the Cinéma Darcy), or even Ajaccio (at the Ellipse).
