Bregenzer Festspiele (Bregenz Festival)

18. July to 19. August 2018

Carmen has long since lost her heart to a bull-fighter when soldier Don José falls in love with her. His is supposed to arrest her: however, she wraps him around her little finger and he loosens her fetters. As a result, he is arrested, and the fascination of this non-conformist woman and the tricks of her gang of smugglers conflict with his dutiful life. He tries in vain to convince Carmen to be a part of his bourgeois life. She doesn’t love him and mocks him. Passion, jealousy and disaster take their course on the lake stage in 2018 under the stage management of the Danish director Kasper Holten and the musical direction of Paolo Carignani. “Carmen”, after a novella by Prosper Merimee, is one of the most popular and most-frequently performed operas ever.
