Clandon Wood is thrilled to present a unique full-length production of Bizet’s Carmen on Sunday 5th May 2019

Transforming the beautiful glass pavilion at Clandon Wood into an intimate in-the-round performance space, Rogue Opera’s cast of six singers and pianist bring you the drama of Bizet’s most famous opera, up close and personal.

Set against some of the most recognisable music in opera, this drama is a serious and still-relevant examination of violence, obsession and the struggle of a complex and spirited woman striving for independence and choice in life and love.

Rogue Opera’s fully staged intimate production is sung in French with English surtitles. The cast strip away the pomp and pageantry to present a raw and intimate piece of theatre.

The audience is close enough to experience the blood, sweat and tears and to feel the vibration of every note, Bizet’s thrilling and captivating music is raw, powerful and intimate.

The talented cast and creative team are all professionals with backgrounds including Longborough Festival Opera, Royal Opera House Chorus, English National Opera Chorus, Glyndebourne Festival Chorus and all perform regularly as soloists throughout the UK and Europe.

All profits from the event benefit The Brigitte Trust – a charity which supports people in Surrey at the end of life in their own homes, offering practical and emotional support and respite to carers and family.

There are only 70 seats available for this unique and intimate performance so please book your places as seats are selling fast.
