Bizet’s masterpiece has been the top draw at the world’s opera houses for nearly 150 years now. And no wonder: the dangerously alluring and unrestrained Gypsy woman at its heart is one of the most thrilling and erotic female characters ever to grace an opera stage. With lyrical passages like the famous Habanera that go straight to the heart and raucous crowd scenes like the Torreador Song, this opera is a passionate love story that unfolds with astonishing realism – and tragedy.
In this contemporary production by Pál Oberfrank Carmen will appeare in an arena of mirrors crafted by Kossuth Prize-winning set designer László Székely.

The critics respond:
“Pál Oberfrank has it completely right. This really is the way (well, fine: perhaps one of the ways) to direct an opera (…): for those who are well familiar with Carmen, those who know it by heart, I am certain that this production will remain a memorable one (…), what will stay with the young will not be (…) some kind of sublime, pathetic mass, but rather a more-or-less upbeat, colourful, living and vibrant cavalcade.” (Dóra Szlávik, prae.hu)

Opera in two parts, four acts, in French with Hungarian prose and surtitles
