Carmen is one of the most popular operas ever written. The drama unfolds around the free-spirited Carmen and the earnest Don José, who are fatefully bound in both love and death. This work brims with familiar music, including the lively prelude, "Habanera", which accompanies Carmen's appearance on stage, "Seguidilla", by which Carmen beguiles Don José, the spectacular "Les tringles des sistres tintatient (La Chanson Bohême)" , accompanied by flamenco dancing, and the showy "Votre toast, je peux vous le render (Toreador Aria)".

This is a new production of Carmen by Spanish director Àlex Ollé of Barcelona, who brings his own inimitable reading of the opera and has it unfold in a completely new way. As with his new production of Turandot, performed at several venues in Japan in 2019, Ollé's musical sensitivity, bold ideas and strongly coherent vision flower in the dynamic space of his productions. This is a production bound to gain national and international attention.

Artistic Director of Opera ONO Kazushi will be taking up the baton, tag-teaming with Ollé to sweep up the house in a passionate whirl. The role of Carmen will be performed by the talented French mezzo soprano Stéphanie D'Oustrac, while the up-and-coming tenor Migran Agadzhanyan will take on the role of Don José.
