The Penrith Symphony Orchestra is presenting Bizet’s opera ‘Carmen’.
Be swept away by a tale of fate, lust, murder and jealousy in a full concert performance of one of the greatest operas of all time.
‘Carmen’ has since become one of the most popular and frequently performed operas in the classical canon; the ‘Habanera’ from Act 1 and the ‘Toreador Song’ from Act 2 are among the best known of all operatic arias.
Noemi Nadelmann is electrifying as Carmen, appearing with fellow stars of Opera Australia and the orchestra. It’s not often that a production of this size comes to Penrith, with the performance featuring nine soloists, 60 musicians and over 70 singers on stage together at The Joan.
It will be an exhilarating evening of music set to dazzle audiences on a winter night. Make sure to secure your seats for this premier event.
‘Carmen’ will be on at The Joan in Penrith this Saturday, August 3 at 7pm. Tickets are from $25. To book or for more information, call 4723 7600.
