From the Royal Opera House in London, Metro Cinema presents big screen encores of the season's best live productions. Spanish heat and gypsy passion arrive on the Royal Opera stage with this darkly passionate and sumptiously exotic reading of one of the world's favourite operas. Don Jose, a naive soldier, is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen. He abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts from his military duties, only to lose Carmen's love to the glamourous toreador Escamillo.
Forbidden love, a family rivalry and the death of two lovers — echoes of Romeo and Juliet are found in Donizetti's haunting opera Lucia di Lammermoor. More than a plot function, madness is explored in this bel canto masterpiece as a personal tragedy, a political statement and a healing ritual.
Join us in the Kaasa Lobby 45 minutes before curtain for the complimentary Opera Talks, which provides an overview of the production.
