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.

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.
