This version of Carmen is performed by the vocal and instrumental ensemble VociHARMONIE a CMMA XV specialized choir (with choirmaster Eliane Astaud) conducted by Daniel Gàlvez-Vallejo.
A gypsy girl, a corporal of Dragoons, a toreador…
Does it ring a bell?
“Love? A rebellious bird! Look out for yourself!”
Yes, you know it.
“The flower that you threw to me”
You know this tune ticking over in your mind.
“And remember as you fight, love awaits you”.
Carmen of course! It’s Carmen by Bizet. It was on the tip of your tongue.
One of the most performed operas in the world that when it was created in 1875 wasn’t a huge success. Since then, Carmen has seduced Corporal of Dragoons Don Jose and the whole world.
Don Jose was Daniel Gàlvez-Vallejo’s first character in Bastille who is now the musical director. Role performed with passion all over the world and who’s better to conduct with energy the choir, the soloists and an orchestra in this production?
