Greek National Opera
by Georges Bizet
The most popular French opera of all time, a symbol of love and freedom, is back at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus in a Greek National Opera production, directed by the distinguished artistic director of the Göteborg Opera Stephen Langridge. Langridge’s Carmen, first presented at the Odeon in 2016, is a modern, sharp, take on the opera, relevant to our times, set in contemporary Europe, a continent of closed borders and poverty. Aided by Giorgos Souglidis’ impressive costumes and sets, Giuseppe di Iorio’s otherworldly lighting, and Thomas Bergman’s atmospheric projections, Langridge creates a contemporary yet also timeless universe for Carmen’s iconic story.
