They say an opera begins in the imagination and filters through into people’s lives long after the curtain goes down. In the case of Bizet’s Carmen, this would mean that those who watch this popular opera will become members of a gang of smugglers, will fight a bull and have an affair with a fiery tempered gypsy. Experience all of this with Cape Town Opera at the The Artscape Theatre for R149 on 17 or 19 March. Going to the Opera in itself is quite the experience. Going to watch Bizet’s impassioned Carmen is an unforgettable experience all together. Carmen the fiery gypsy will cast a seductive spell on all who watch her tumultuous affair and struggle during a time of Spanish mutiny. Delight your ears with the classic melodies of wellknown songs such as Habanera, Seguidilla, Flower and Toreador. These lyrical masterpieces are sung by acclaimed local diva Violina Anguelov and Argentinian Tenor Marcelo Puente. A large chorus is matched by orchestral interludes while Flamenco dancers from La Rosa Spanish Dance theatre will have toes tapping and take the performance to the next musical level. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself humming these catchy tunes long after the show is over. Operatic fact The first opera in Belarussian was called “Ручка крышкі” which means “pen cap” and was set inside a police station. The story explains the love story between a constable and a captain that sprouted from a single simple pen cap.
