If you haven’t seen Carmen, it’s a tragedy.

Adelaide’s Victoria Square will be transformed into sultry Spain for one summer night in March, as Opera’s most famous seductress Carmen takes over the city centre.

This very special family-friendly event combines live opera, a full orchestra and opera chorus, and large screen projection of the action so that no matter where you sit in the Square you’ll have the best seat in the house.

Starring mezzo-soprano Helen Sherman as Carmen, the cast includes some of the finest Australian opera talent assembled from all over the world for one night only. Conducted by Oliver von Dohnányi and directed by Stuart Maunder, this event is exclusive to Adelaide.

RESERVED SEATING

The Northern section of Victoria Square is closest to the stage and features a range of reserved seating, bars and other facilities provided by our event partners East End Cellars.

PICNIC AREA

The Southern end of Victoria Square will be a General Admission picnic area for all the family. Relax on a rug with a picnic and enjoy the action live and on large screen. Food trucks, bars and other facilities will be available in the picnic area.
