This post is also available in: Português (Portuguese (Portugal))

On the 26th of May, at 9:30 pm, the Black and Silver Room of Casino Estoril will host the opera Carmen, by Georges Bizet, with a libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy. Although when it premiered in Paris in 1875, it was considered scandalous, vulgar, immoral and inappropriate for the society of the time, the truth is that today it is one of the most famous operas in the world.

Written in four acts, the great masterpiece and last opera by the French musician and composer portrays the story of the gipsy who does not hesitate to die in the name of freedom and love. For Carmen, love is like a wild bird that cannot be imprisoned.

Based on a novel of the same name from the time of the historian, senator and romantic writer Prosper Mérimée, Carmen’s story is set in Spain and revolves around four main characters: Carmen, a seductive gipsy who works in a cigarette factory and has freedom as her symbol; Don José, soldier, obsessed with Carmen and Micaela’s fiancé; Micaela, Don José’s fiancée who seeks throughout the opera to restore her fiance’s wits and Escamillo, a bullfighter and Carmen’s new love.

Set in Francoist Spain, the opera Carmen is distinguished by the staging of the Coro Orfeón Crevilentino and the Coro de Niño Federación Coral de Crevillent. It has more than 70 artists, including Coro Orfeón Crevilentino and the Coro de Niño Federación Coral de Crevillent and the collaboration of the Spanish Ballet Antonio Márquez.

Bizet’s grand opera is not to be missed!
