Opera on Screen: Carmen

Event Main Carmen


The great Vesselina Kasarova makes her long-awaited debut in one of the greatest mezzo roles in the operatic repertoire: Carmen. She has a partner of equal stature in Jonas Kaufmann (Don José), who, in this Zurich Opera production of Georges Bizet's masterpiece, undergoes a transformation from repressed mama’s boy to passionate, jealousy-crazed hot head.

In four acts. Sung in French.

Bringing unforgettable opera from around the world to our screens.
