Streetwise Opera explores the passion and the exuberance of Bizet’s much-loved opera Carmen.

“Love is a rebel bird that nobody can tame”, sings the impetuous and capricious Carmen. The warning is ignored by Don José, a shy and young soldier that abandons everything to follow her, only to see her quickly grow bored of him. As Carmen surrenders to the charisma of the toreador Escamillo, the story quickly heads towards tragedy.

This performance marks the end of Streetwise Opera’s seven-week residency at the Royal Opera House, which will explore Barrie Kosky's production of Bizet’s masterpiece.

Singers, instrumentalists and dancers from the Royal Opera House will work with Streetwise Opera participants during workshops, and will join them for this performance.
