Dnipro Opera’s Carmen comes to Towngate Theatre

Feel the thrill of fiery passion, jealousy and violence of 19th Century Seville, in Bizet’s most popular opera – Carmen.

After last season’s premier in the UK, Dnipro Opera from the Ukraine are delighted to return to the Towngate Theatre in Basildon on Friday 2 February 2024. The Opera and Ballet theatre company has a long-standing heritage of top-quality opera productions, and they are excited to return to Essex in their
2024 Opera Season.

Carmen tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who falls head over heels in love with Carmen, a seductive, free-spirited femme fatale. The infatuated Don José abandons his childhood sweetheart and neglects his military duties, only to lose the fickle Carmen to the glamorous toreador Escamillo.

Aston spoke to the shows producer Alexej Ignatow.
