About the Event

Bizet's wildly popular opera portrays violent passion under a blazing Spanish sun. The Paris Opera presents Calixto Bieito's new staging of 'Carmen', with a star‐studded cast including Michael Spyres, Joseph Calleja, Clémentine Margaine and Gaëlle Arquez.

The story of Carmen sets the ideal of the free‐spirited and rebellious love against the shadow of destructive obsession. Replete with memorable arias, Bizet's masterpiece is the most performed opera in the repertoire.

Performed in French, with French and English surtitles.

    I do not know what to say about the new direction, especially the ending. When Elisabetta killed herself by taking poison and then Don Carlo shot himself, we the audience did not know how to react. It was too bad as all the casts were so wonderful, they all sang beautifully. I was almost in tears except the ending.

    10歳の娘を連れてオペラ座でバレエ鑑賞しました。 フランス語が話せないので少し心配しましたが、スタッフの方々がとても親切でした。 バランシン作品は難しいかな?と思いましたが、 娘は本場のバレエに触れることができ大興奮で最後まで楽しく鑑賞できました。 カーテンコールの観客席は日本では見ることの出来ないほどの拍手喝さいで素晴らしかったです。 いつかまた2人でオペラ座に行ける日を楽しみにしています。

    本場のオペラ。初めてでした。素晴らしかった!次回のパリ滞在の節も是非足を運びたいとおもいます。 恥を忍んで。パリのオペラ座、と言えば「オペラにあるオペラ座」しか思い浮かばない人間で、バスティーユにもオペラ座があるとは、夢思いませんでした。そのため当日、当たり前の顔をしてオペラのオペラ座に出向き、そこで誤りを指摘され、慌ててバスティーユへ駆け付けた次第。1970年代のバリしか知らない者の失敗談でした。
