Bizet's 'Carmen'


Thu Nov 24th 2016 at 20:30
Malta, Splendid, Strada Stretta, Valletta, Valletta

Event Details

The Strada Stretta Concept, under the auspices of the Valletta 2018 Foundation, present, Bizet's 'Carmen', under the artistic direction of Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci. The event is being held in collaboration with the French Embassy in Malta.

As always with Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci an 'out-of-the-box' novel artistic production is being offered to the public. This is based on Schembri Bonaci's theatre philosophy and whose past productions always provoked debate and intrigue. Whilst still respecting and remaining loyal to the music and libretto, his production is playing on a new approach as to how one could deal with Opera in its unfortunate terminal stage.

The opera will be held in Strada Stretta -- just around 'Splendid', where the character of the famous street will be captured and amalgamated into this opera.

The international troupe consists of:

Clare Ghigo as Carmen
Charles Vincenti as Jose'
Louis Andrew Cassar as Escamillio
Ken Scicluna as Zuniga
Johann Strauss School of Music - Junior Choir

Vincenzo Picone - violin
Matthew Fenech - viola and saxophone
Yuri Charyguine - accordion
Luke Baldacchino - percussion
Emel Hasanoglu - piano
Gjorgji Cincievski - double bass
Tom Armitage - piano
Jess Rymer - trumpet
