Carmen Suite returns to the Saigon Opera this weekend in a new production by HSBO. Who does not know Carmen? This is the most famous opera of the repertoire, and even those who are allergic to opera know it. Carmen is all you expect from an opera: dramatic theater, passionate characters, a love story. And it also contains beautiful melodies.
This weekend Carmen Suite choreographed by the famous Alberto Alonso will continue to fascinate and impress the opera and ballet lovers by transmitting the particular personality of Carmen in a today contemporary social context. Hedonist, impetuous and angry, Carmen is the lover and the ‘femme fatale’ at the same time. The music is undeniably famous, but it was rearranged for the occasion with Shchedrin’s strings and percussion instruments. This time it will be Nguyen Thu Trang who will always play the role of Carmen, alongside the excellent artists Ho Phi Diep, Tran Hoang Yen, Dam Duc Nhuan.
