Main Stage Production

A Burnaby Lyric Opera production

Stage Director:Richard Berg

Music Director:Angus Kellett



“Libre elle est née et libre elle moura!” 

(Free she was born and free she will die!) 


These are the fateful words of Carmen; the passionate, sultry gypsy heroine who lives by her own rules.  The irresistible Carmen plays a dangerous game when she seduces Don Jose, a love-sick soldier who tries in vain to tame the fiery gypsy.  Bizet’s musical masterpiece plays out amid an underlying atmosphere of foreboding, as obsession and jealousy turn deadly.  Carmen is filled with some of the most memorable melodies in opera and is one of the most frequently staged operas in the world.  Carmen comes to life with Burnaby Lyric Opera’s production team and the best of B.C.’s operatic talent at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.  This is a “must see”.... don’t miss it!
