Beauty, creativity, genius: the Renaissance Florence of Lorenzo de' Medici was a powerhouse of art and culture. Among countless shops and government buildings, there was endless beauty coexisting with the dark side of the city, made up of power struggles, plots, intrigues and brutal violence.
Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Carmen on the Lake at Dendy Canberra
Performed on the spectacular water stage of Lake Constance in Bregenz (Austria), George Bizet’s Carmen is a story of passion, destiny, and obsession. The French composer’s opera is most famous for its Spanish melodies, including the Flower Song, Habanera, and the Toreador Song.
Coming soon to cinemas, experience Carmen like never before – recorded live on the floating stage during the Bregenz Festival with a 15-minute interval between acts. As with their previous spectacular productions, you can expect the staging of this classic tale to have an extravagantly original and innovative design, with the waters of the lake being used as an extension of the stage.
This production of Carmen will be directed by Kasper Holten, Director of Opera at the Royal Opera House in London, with the set designed by the British artist Es Devlin. Her past work includes sets for such stars as Adele, Take That, U2, Pet Shop Boys and Kanye West.
