Carmen is a French opera by George Bizet. The libretto was written by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halevy and is based on the story with the same title by Prosper Merimee. The premiere took place on 3 March 1875 at the Opera-Comique in Paris. Although it was pronounced an immoral and superfluous fiasco a year later, it is now one of the world`s most popular operas. The story is about the streetwise gypsy Carmen and her search for love. In our abridged version the audience gets a deeper insight into the relationsip between Carmen, Michaela and Don Jose.

Carmen: Désirée Baraula, mezzosoprano
Don José: Kristian Krokslett, tenor
Michaëla: Stina Levvel, soprano
Escamillo: Magnus Dorholt Kjeldal, barytone
Pianosinastina: Christian Grøvlen

PublikUng is an organization aiming to lower the threshold for going to the opera and classical music concerts for young people. Its vision is both to spread interest in classical music and to make it more readily available to those between 18 and 30. PublikUng now has over 1,700 members and it costs nothing to become a member. There is only one rule and that is  that if you have received a free or very cheap ticket to a concert or performance the registration is binding and you must use your ticket. The first 4 PublikUng members to buy a ticket for Lørdagsopera (Saturday afternoon opera) get in free, all others pay only 50 kroner. Use this link to register
