"Love is like a wild bird, whoever wants to tame it has a hard time, in vain you will call for him, if he does not want, he will not come here," Carmen sings.

How inevitably love subjugates reason is scarcely as passionately portrayed in any other opera as in Bizet's masterpiece.

Since the revised version of the original "Opéra comique" was performed at the Vienna Court Opera in October 1875, the fatal love story between Micaëla, Don José, Carmen and Escamillo is regarded as one of the front runners in the operatic charts.

As of January, the Volksoper is showing the successful production after a production by Guy Joosten.

In German language
A marshy landscape somewhere in the Habsburg-administered Banat around the year 1740. The multi-ethnic state unites here big farmers and life artists: in the estate the pig breeder Zsupán, next to a group of gypsies under the matriarchy of the ancient Czipra.

But a rascal trumps the even bigger and you can not reach an agreement. The beautiful and self-assured Saffi turns the tide, Bárinkay is declared a Gypsy baron and love blends everything for the better. If it were not for the "long arm of the monarchy" who, by means of Count Homonay, enlisted soldiers in Banat for an imminent war ...
