Carmen

Paris. London. New York. And now, Winnipeg! Little Opera Company is proud to present La Tragédie de Carmen, Peter Brook’s radical reworking of Georges Bizet’s opera, in the Carmen_4x6intimate setting of the Théâtre Cercle Molière. Gypsy Carmen is a sizzling seductress, but play with her and you will get burned. Naïve young soldier Don Jose falls for her, leaving his homespun sweetheart Micaela in pursuit of a life of crime and lust with Carmen and her band. But when Carmen callously drops him for Escamillo the strutting bullfighter, jealousy ignites and Don Jose is pushed to the brink. Passions intensify and burst into an emotional bonfire that threatens to destroy them all. Peter Brook’s gripping adaptation brings Bizet’s opera back to its origins of sexual intrigue, power, and complexity. In this distilled 90-minute production, Carmen’s embrace of her dark fate is elevated from an act of submission to an assertion of power. Visceral and explosive, this production explores the boundaries of where opera and theatre meet.
