The IFI brings Irish audiences a unique opportunity to experience live the world famous Teatro alla Scala’s inauguration of its opera season with a new production of Bizet’s Carmen.

Young Georges Bizet, who died soon after the first run of Carmen, never enjoyed the success and fame of his creation. Carmen wasn’t initially well-received, but became (and still is) one of the most famous and popular works in the opera repertoire. For this production, La Scala has gathered the new generation of opera stars, including the German tenor Jonas Kaufmann, the Uruguayan baritone Erwin Schrott, the Italian soprano Adriana Damato, and newest revelation, Georgian mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili, who won the Leyla Gencer Voice Competition last year.
