As if creating a ballroom on the harbour wasn’t challenging enough, Opera Australia will create a village in Seville on the water when it presents its second production of Hand Opera on the Harbour which in 2013 will be Bizet’s Carmen.
Stage productions of Carmen in the past, have included a donkey and a horse. There is also a lovely children’s chorus. Director Gale Edwards joins forces again with costume designer Julie Lynch and set designer Brian Thomson for this production. The three have collaborated on the current very successful production of Strauss’ Salome.
