Event details: Passion, jealousy and the destructive power of love: ETO return to Cambridge with opera at its most involving.

Tuesday 25, Thursday 27 and Friday 28 November:
La tragédie de Carmen by Bizet.

Sung in French with English surtitles

La tragédie de Carmen is opera at its most powerful, a raw and visceral adaptation of Bizet's most popular work. Peter Brook and his collaborators have crafted a concentrated night of theatre that focuses on the fatal relationships between the gypsy, soldier, village girl and bullfighter.

The score retains all of the most famous musical moments of the original; Carmen's ‘Habanera' and ‘Seguidilla', Don Jose's ‘Flower Song', and Escamillo's swaggering ‘Toreador Song'.

Wednesday 26 and Saturday 29 November
Rusalka by Dvořák -

Sung in English

She is the mermaid forbidden to mix with mortals. He is the handsome prince for whom she risks everything. Together they embark on a love affair that sees her sacrifice her home and her immortality. Dvorak's rapturous score, presented here in an acclaimed chamber version, is crowned by the poignant ‘Song to the Moon'.
