Georges Bizet
Opéra comique in four acts
Libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy based on Prosper Mérimée’s Carmen
Original language with Italian and English surtitles

The most performed opera in the world, Georges Bizet’s Carmen, returns to the Sferisterio (July 20, 23, and 28, August 6) in a new staging by Daniele Menghini; the set and costume design are by Davide Signorini and Nika Campisi (following their success with Barbiere di Siviglia last summer). This new creative team is designing a setting inspired by the most traditional symbols of Spanish culture and which will transform the Sferisterio arena into a huge Plaza de Toros to create a unique space thanks to its famous background wall. The intense mezzo-soprano Ketevan Kemoklidze will play Carmen, with talented up-and-coming tenor Ragaa Eldin as Don José. Completing the cast, Roberta Mantegna (Micaëla) and Fabrizio Beggi (Escamillo).
