One of the world opera's most popular titles is a fascinating essence of the French charm and the Spanish passion. Carmen is a thrilling musical drama that transforms operatic history right before the eyes of the audience, in addition to a series of famous arias. It begins as an opéra comique, turns into a romantic drama, and culminates as a veristic opera. A compelling story about the power of human passion is seasoned with lively and touching melodies and captivating rhythms. However, the new production by the director Lubor Cukr has more to offer than just a story of a fickle love; Carmen became a symbol of freedom. Love as both fate and misfortune: direct, cynical, innocent, cruel and, for that very same reason, free.
