You like classic music, you love opera, but you don’t know how to pass this sweet passion to your children? We fell you: shows last for hours, are very expensive and are sometimes directed in a complex manner… Problems that are no more with Une Carmen, étoile du cirque, a low-cost show (only €20 for adults and €10 for people under 26 years old!) performed on the stage of the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris.
The idea? Telling the story of the beautiful Carmen and her two suitors, Don Jose and Escamillo, in the universe of a circus. The young Italian director, Andrea Bernard, shakes up some settings of the original story by inviting on stage colorful circus artists: Don Jose becomes the circus guard and Escamillo a strongman. They both evolve alongside a knife thrower, a trapeze artist, a fakir, jugglers, acrobats and dancers…
The performance lasts 1h15 and gives a nice overview of what a contemporary touch can give to classic operas: inventiveness, colors, energy… After this, your children would ask to go on an opera outing!
