Carmen – Gala performance
Time Out says
One of the biggest hits of summer 2019 was the performance of Bizet's classic opera by HNK Rijeka's opera stars within the grand confines of Pula's amphitheatre. Mezzosoprano Ivana Srbljan and the rest of the stellar cast now return this showstopper to its rightful and similarly grand home for a gala performance. Expect a rapturous response for the returning heroes. One of the most popular and frequently performed operas in the classical canon, Carmen is a controversial and unflinching tale depicting the downfall of proletariat soldier Don José, whose life falls apart after he falls in love with the passionate gipsy Carmen.
