G. Bizet – Carmen

October 20, 2016 - October 29, 2016


Johannes will performing the role of Morales in one of Bizet’s few but breathtaking works.

Michael Williams’ spectacular staging of Bizet’s eternally popular Spanish melodrama, which played to sell-out success in 2011, is revived as the second instalment of the Naspers Grand Opera Masters Series. Michael Mitchell’s atmospheric designs conjure up a hot and sultry Seville, and the large cast is completed by a company of flamenco dancers, executing the inspired choreography of the late Carolyn Holden.

CTO Associate Music Director Tim Murray conducts the CPO, with an augmented CTO Chorus giving full-bodied voice to Bizet’s great melodies, and a cast of international soloists with CTO Staff and Studio singers including Johannes Slabbert.
