Bizet Le docteur Miracle
Bizet/Constant La tragédie de Carmen
Royal Academy Opera’s summer production features authentic and reworked Bizet. Written when he was just 18 years old, and for which he was awarded joint first prize in a competition organised by Offenbach, Le docteur Miracle is a little gem; witty and light, with shades of Rossini and Donizetti, this comedy set in the mayor’s house in Padua features the famous ‘Omelette Quartet’.

In contrast, Peter Brook’s reworking of Bizet’s most famous work, Carmen, delves into the dark psychological relationships between the four main characters. Omitting the chorus and other principal roles, Marius Constant reorchestrated the score for an ensemble of 15 players, still managing to embrace a wonderful and varied soundworld. The two casts are conducted by different conductors, with Director of Opera Gareth Hancock sharing the podium with Repetiteur Fellow William Cole.
Tickets: £15-£30 (concessions £5 off) from the Academy’s Box Office
