Do you know that Brahms, Wagner, Tchaikovsky and Nietzsche were big fans of Carmen, the opera by Georges Bizet.
And do you know that the author, Prosper Merimee, of the eponymous story, on which the libretto is based, has been inspired by the work “Gypsies” by Pushkin, whom Merimee considerd a brilliant author.
Go see Carmen performance at the Sofia Opera and Ballet. You will enjoy a very interesting scenography, wonderful performers and orchestra, as well as other pleasant and useful amenities such as electronic tickets, which are loaded directly into the application Pass2U, prosecco in the break, the beautiful hall of the opera, full to the roof and also a warm and very grateful audience.
Don’t be surprised to see strange characters with ropes. This is the personalized image of destiny, which tangle mercilessly the protagonists in its treacherous strands. You will see how the story takes place not on a simple stage, but as if on an arena for bullfight-loaded with tension, love thrill, excitement, rapture, bloodshed and tragedy. You will have the opportunity to look from above, in a giant mirror above the arena, the tragic story of the characters, as the Gods on Olympus are watching the small life stories of the people below.
Go hear the beloved habanera of Carmencita, the solemn march of Toreadora Escamillo, and the love arias of the confused Don Jose.
