Carmen in the Square

The world’s most popular opera, Carmen, will take over Adelaide’s Victoria Square, with an unmissable production that will transform the centre of Adelaide into sultry Spain for one night only on Saturday 23 March 2019.

Carmen in the Square, takes opera out of the theatre and into the community as opera lovers and the broader public alike immerse themselves into this musical and visual spectacle, under the stars, in the centre of the city. Carmen in the Square is the first performance on the 2019 State Opera South Australia program, and is directed by newly appointed Artistic Director, Stuart Maunder AM.

Carmen in the Square combines live opera, a full orchestra and opera chorus, and large screen projection of the action so that no matter where you sit you’ll have the best seat in the house. Conducted by Oliver von Dohnányi and directed by Stuart Maunder, it is suitable for all ages. The duration of the performance is 2 hours 45 minutes. This event is exclusive to Adelaide.
