Carmen

Amande Concerts brings opera classic Carmen to Newcastle Tyne Theatre and Opera House on February 21, 2023.

Performed by the Dnipro Opera from Ukraine and sung in French with English surtitles, it features a full cast, accompanied by a live orchestra numbering more than 30.

Carmen tells of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who falls in love with a seductive femme fatale. He abandons his sweetheart and neglects his military duties, only to lose the fickle Carmen to toreador Escamillo.
