“La Tragédie de Carmen” On Tour Soon

5 September, 2018

RESEO members Pop-Up Opera are an innovative touring opera company that aim to broaden the appeal of opera and to challenge the way it is performed, by taking it into lots of different spaces and making it intimate and engaging.

Pop-Up Opera are shortly to begin touring with La Tragédie de Carmen, Peter Brook’s reimagining of the masterpiece by Bizet.

The intense and tragic tale of the four characters who lie at the heart of the original story plays out in a thought-provoking drama of unhinged love and jealousy. Actions are not without consequences, and the stark reality of the repercussions for Don José are laid bare as the story unfolds before you in a series of his tormented flashbacks.

This dark and thrilling piece is directed by John Wilkie. A familiar tale, but not as you’d expect it…

Details of all performances can be found here.
