Theater Basel


Opéra comique in four acts by Georges Bizet
Text by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy after the novella by Prosper Mérimée

Repertoire classic as an energetic revue

Seductive, independent, radical: Carmen is a product of overlapping myths. Sometimes she appears as a strong woman, sometimes as a projection screen for male fantasies of exoticism or as a clichéd image of the femme fatale. Argentinian-born choreographer Constanza Macras is known for her political and humorous dance theater that transcends genre boundaries. For her first production of an opera classic, she takes on the myth of Carmen and brings out the revue-like side of Bizet’s masterpiece. The award-winning conductor Maxime Pascal will be appearing at Theater Basel for the first time.
