Carmen

2DCS
Director:Calixto Bieito
Length:167 minutes
Genre:Opera

Director: Calixto Bieito  •  Actors: Elina Garanča, Roberto Alagna, Maria Agresta, Ildar Abdrazakov

Carmen will never surrender, born free, free will she die”cries Bizet’s heroine to Don José at the end of the opera. This irrepressible freedom, coupled with a need to live ever more intensely on a knife-edge, is present in Calixto Bieito’s production as in no other. Of Mérimée’s character, Bieito’s Carmen retains her thoroughly Iberian contours and the burning temperament of a woman who lives by small-time trafficking. However, the rebel bird is essentially a creature of our own times. A brazen and indomitable seductress and a product of social and masculine brutality, she lives life in the fast lane, avid for existence.
