Description

Dear Students, members and friends

Let's discover with Opera expert Peter Gordon all the secret behind one of the most performed operas in the world: Bizet's Carmen.

If any opera belies the notion that this art form is somehow snobby and elitist, it’s Carmen. This now famous story of the gypsy seductress and the fatally besotted soldier Don José combines drama that is both metaphorically and literally gut-stabbing with music that is popular in the best sense of the word: hummable tunes and melodies that go round in one’s head for days afterward.

In this session, we'll take a look at the story, the music and the characters, in particular Carmen: fiery, thoughtless, superstitious and completely irredeemable with no regard for anyone but herself, and yet ... t his is a woman who knows just who she is and who stands up for herself. Although the opera is 140 years old, is also entirely modern.

That, and not just the music, is surely why Carmen became, and remains,iconic: it still speaks to us and not always comfortably.

This is a designed workshop as preparation for the upcoming Opera Hong Kong's production, in the theatre form 16 to 20 of May 2018.
