Georges Bizet’s opera premiered in 1875 in Paris and it is still being interpreted in Spain since 1881. This time it is going to be performed by the company Operíssimo Barcelona and it is going to be performed by the mezzo-soprano Angela Lorite and the soprano Charo Tris in the role of Carmen, while the tenors Sergi Gimenez and Jorge Ceccarell are going to embody the role of Don Juan. These lyrical artists will make us shudder with an excellent musical quality that will shake even the most skeptical ones.

Between love and death

This masterpiece of Georges Bizet is set in Southern Spain through the exotic view that people ha about Spain in the middle of the nineteenth century. This story is about Carmen, a gypsy girl from Seville who is in love with a soldier, Don José, who surrenders to the passion of the young girl and finally becomes a smuggler. It is seen as a passionate story about love and jealousy in which the main characters are in between love and death.

From your hotel in Paseo de Gracia we encourage you to go and enjoy this opera at the Gaudí Theatre in Barcelona on Friday May 6th and Saturday 7th at 18:30h and Sunday 8th at 17: 00h.
