Carmen the Cabaret at The Harold
If Carmen is a 'femme fatale', why does she end up dying? If Carmen inhabited your soul, how would it feel? Using all the hit tunes from the opera Carmen, award-winning cabaret team Eliane Morel (mezzo soprano with Opera Bites, The Harold's regular opera at the pub) and Daryl Wallis (musical director and accompanist), directed by International opera legend Ghillian Sullivan, comically interrogate the opera's story and music, and explore how performing Carmen affects those who dare to take on the role...
After receiving rave reviews at its world premiere at the Adelaide Fringe 2023, Carmen the Cabaret will have you laughing, crying, singing along and wondering how you knew all the tunes from an opera you've never seen.
"Morel’s and Wallis’s cabaret is great fun... Impressive operatic style and range... engaging and humorous".
"Wonderful storytelling... sumptuous accompaniment..."
"What a voice!"
