Love, jealousy and vengeance
A dramatic rendition of an operatic masterpiece is coming to Ashford’s Cineworld cinema.
Bizet’s Carmen was recorded live from the waters of Sydney Harbour, on a purpose built floating stage, against the backdrop of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
Bizet’s famous opera tells the story of the naive soldier Don Jose who abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts the army when he falls under an alluring gypsy’s spell. When he loses her love to the dashing toreador Escamillo, the scene is set for jealousy and vengeance. The performance is being screened at the Eureka Leisure Park cinema on August 1 and 4. Tickets are available at www.cinemalive.com or from the Cineworld box office.
