New Zealand Opera presents Carmen

Passion, seduction and an irresistible musical score combine to bring Bizet’s ravishing opera to life.  Carmen is our fearless heroine who will be free at any cost, setting the path to the opera’s gripping conclusion.

Starring Georgian soprano Nino Surguladze in the title role, with Tom Randle as Don José and James Clayton as Escamillo and supported by a stunning cast of Kiwi and international singers, this production creates a world that’s gritty, sexy and dangerous.  The Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra is conducted by Francesco Pasqualetti.
