I’ve had an email from Midland Opera, a local opera group with members living in all parts of Birmingham but several living locally in Selly Oak, Selly Park and Bournville.
On the 24th and 25th November, for the first time, they will be performing Bizet’s Carmen at the Stirchley Baths Community Hub, which we all know is a fantastic space. The company will be singing in English, with a small orchestra, Bournville Youth Singers, and professional soloists presenting the world’s favourite opera on 24th and 25th November at the Baths.
There have been so may versions of this story of love, jealousy and revenge but be prepared for Midland Opera’s take on the character of Carmen. Is she the seductress or is she the abused woman? Come and find out, enjoy the sumptuous singing by professional soloists, and also be entertained by members of Bournville Youth Chorus.
Ticket details on the attached flyer, and can be purchased from Midland Opera’s website.
