Villa InCanto Opera Group from Verona, Italy, bring their alternative to staged operas and with this very popular Opera bringing Spanish heat and gypsy passion to Normansfield Theatre. Don José is a young soldier in the army in Seville. He intends to marry Micaëla, a girl from his home village, but when he meets the sensual and high-spirited Carmen, his head is soon turned. This is a powerful but intimate show performed by an excellent cast of singers.
A review by Ian Nethersell of Villa InCanto’s recent production enthused about the performers and the production “the paring down, without compromise to quality and congruence drew me into the piece and I left feeling as though I had been part of it, experienced it and not just watched it”.
