It is four years since THE MOSCOW STATE OPERA brought their production of CARMEN to Dublin and the overwhelmingly enthusiastic response was such that a return was inevitable.
Sung in French with English surtitles, this traditional staging is directed by George Isaakyan, one of Russia’s foremost Directors and multi-winner of the country’s most prestigious award THE GOLDEN MASK. Enthused Isaakyan “ Our sets have been designed in association with THE PICASSO FOUNDATION, which together with the costumes and Bizet’s wonderful score, guarantee an authentic Spanish feel to the whole performance”.
CELINE BYRNE, Ireland’s own International soprano will be starring in the role of MICHAELA every evening, and the orchestra of THE MOSCOW STATE OPERA will accompany the soloists, a magnificent chorus, and the children’s choir provided by THE JUNIOR MUSICALS THEATRE SCHOOL OF BRAY ( who have been practising for weeks and are terrific!)
A real treat for opera lovers and those who are new to this art-form
