Open-air feminist touring opera
Opera
From the age of 13

By reinterpreting the character of Carmen from a feminist perspective (the opera opens with street harassment and ends with femicide), Jeanne Desoubeaux gives this popular figure a musical and collective makeover in this open-air touring performance. Love meets death in three acts and three locations. With a joyful energy that immerses the spectators cum witnesses, this has the feel of a popular festival celebrating both the power of Bizet’s melodies and their need for a contemporary social reading.
