CARMEN
Georges Bizet's most popular opera, now directed by Frank van Laecke

A contemporary and explicit version of the original

This opera tells the world famous story of Carmen, a femme fatale and a pure man-eater. Director Frank van Laecke chooses to place this traditional story in a contemporary setting and descends into a layer of society that usually remains hidden, namely the milieu of human trafficking. Themes such as women, children, drugs and arms trafficking remain topical today. The rawness of all this is further emphasized in the colors of the functional decor and costumes: everything in black / gray tones.
