Following last year’s visit to Stafford Castle, Heritage Opera, Northwest England’s professional touring opera company, returns to Stafford Shakespeare Festival with a heady mix of love, lust and murder, - Bizet's Carmen. Experience wonderful melody after wonderful melody, as 1920s Seville comes vividly to life in this intimate chamber version of this classic story. The Habanera, Flower Song and The Toreador's Song are among the world's best-loved tunes. Together with the passionate drama of the fateful love triangle between Carmen, the wild gypsy girl, Don José, the brooding, obsessive soldier and Escamillo, the strutting Toreador, they make this the perfect evening for beginners and opera aficionados alike. The world's most popular opera is presented by a fully professional cast, a local children’s chorus, and supported by an 6-piece chamber orchestra.
