Carmen – Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour 2013

Opera Australia's 5-star 2013 production is returning to the Harbour in 2017

In our 5-star review of Gale Edwards' 2013 production of Carmen for the Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour series, we described it as "the perfect potion – the glitzy visuals and hyperactive energy of a Broadway musical mixed with world-class opera."

It's no wonder it's returning to its harbourside perch at Mrs Macquarie's Point for Autumn 2017.

A new cast will take to Brian Thomson's striking stage, including international leads Josè Maria Lo Monaco (as Carmen), Andeka Gorrotxategi (Don José) and Marko Mimica (Escamillo).

Read our 5-star review of the 2013 production – then read our guide to doing HOSH like a boss. And get excited.

See what else is in the Opera Australia 2017 season.
