One of the world’s most popular opera’s.  Bizet’s Carmen is a heart racing drama filled with much loved arias.  Proud and defiant, Carmen is a femme fatale who lives by her own rules.  She draws Don Jose into her wild world and he becomes captivated under her spell leaving behind his sweetheart Micaela and his honour. The arrival of the magnificent bullfighter Escamillo pushes Don Jose to the point of madness as jealousy takes over. Carmen is part of this year’s Western Art Music Designated Works List

Performances             21, 24, 26, 28 July
Suitability:                    Years 7 -12


Mozart’s Don Giovanni is the powerful tale of an anti-hero and nobleman.  He flouts all of society’s rules and betrays without remorse and outrages those around him leaving despair and ruin in his wake.  Dramatic and darkly humorous this wonderfully staged production will leave your heart pumping as the truth unfolds in a climatic finale.

Performances:            20, 23, 25, 27 October
