Bizet’s Carmen to take stage at HCMC Opera House

Georges Bizet’s classic Spanish love story Carmen is one of the most famous, successful and most operas in the world’s musical history. The epic story is about beautiful but fiery gypsy girl Carmen, who finds herself in the midst of a love triangle between her boyfriend Don Jose, an army soldier, and bullfighter Escamillo.
The performance will be choreographed by People's Artist Kim Quy with the participation of artists of HBSO, Nguyen Thu Trang (Carmen), Ho Phi Diep (Don Jose), Nguyen Luong Hoa (the toreador Escamillo) and Thach Hieu Lang (Fate) and others.
The show will also include two other dance pieces featuring the neoclassical style, “Dépaysement” and “Falling Angels” choreographed by Julien Guérin and Nguyen Phuc Hung, and performed by Do Hoang Khang Ninh and Sung A. Lung.
