St. Margarethen Quarry


DURATION

ca. 2.5 hours (incl. intermission)

Synopsis

Two young, very different people meet on the streets of Seville on a scorching hot summer evening: the

fateful love of the impulsive factory worker Carmen and the undaunted Sergeant José pulls the unlikely couple into a whirlpool of love, jealousy, hate and disgust. In the end, the honest soldier murders the woman who has never really loved anything or anyone – apart from her boundless freedom.

For this limitless love, Georges Bizet created an equally boundless score featuring a wealth of grandiose melodies: Habanera, Flower and Toreador Song, Seguidilla, the Smuggler's March – all these sonorous masterpieces will find their own echoes in the both wild and gentle landscape of the quarry

St. Margarethen, who thus becomes a parable for the most fascinating figure of the opera stage.
