High Tide for Carmen





Free Event

Theatre and Performance, Room 104, Level 3, Victoria and Albert Museum

This summer, Georges Bizet’s opera Carmen will be presented on a huge scale on the lake stage of Bregenz Festival, in Austria.

With direction by Kasper Holten, stage design by Es Devlin and video design by Luke Halls, this production pushes at the limits of modern technology. This special display, by Susanna Boehm, will celebrate the production, bringing set models and designs to the V&A Theatre and Performance Galleries, and getting under the skin of how the Opera on the Lake is created.
