Carmen – fiery, daring and uncompromising – meets José, a soldier with a past…She seeks love and liberty; he’s torn between duty, desire and jealousy… Micaëla yearns to return José to the safety of his village… and charismatic Escamillo soon becomes a rival for Carmen’s affections.
Is the bohemian life lived by the gypsy smugglers outside the law a happy one or is true contentment found in obedience to the regiment, church and society?
Can love be liberating or is it always a fight for dominance?
Are Carmen and José doomed by Fate… or human nature...
Directed by Bronwen Stephens, Music Director - Varia Doletskaya with Choreography and Movement Direction by Michelle Buckley.
