»Best Carmen since the 1970's«


Carmen wants to combine life-affirming passion and independence. She is convinced she can love anyone she desires. Carmen works in a factory that produces souvenirs for the tourist trade. One day, she catches the eye of the young supervisor José. Their passionate encounter is the beginning of a dramatic, passionate story of jealousy and death. 

Georges Bizet’s Carmen, composed in 1875, is one of the most popular operas in the world. The director behind this critically acclaimed production is Johanna Garpe, renowned for her work with distinctly modern settings. In her version, Carmen is a mature, creative, defiant woman who explores her own sexuality. When it premiered in 2019, Swedish Radio described it as, »a Carmen who lives in Sweden here and now,« and Svenska Dagbladet found it to be, »a Carmen worth waiting for. The orchestra’s performance is wonderfully dynamic«. The performance has been reworked for the autumn 2020 into a semi-scenic version to be able to play in a corona safe way.
