The Russian State Ballet and Opera House will be presenting Carmen, on Wednesday, February 19, and La Traviata, on Thursday, February 20 at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage.

Carmen, by composer Georges Bizet, will be sung in French with English subtitles and tells the story in four acts of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who is seduced by Carmen, a free-spirited femme fatale.

La Traviata, an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi, will be sung in Italian with English subtitles and is a love story shrouded in sacrifice and misunderstanding.

These new adaptations will feature an orchestra with more than 30 musicians.

Russian State Ballet and Opera House producer Alexej Ignatow said: “You don’t need to be an expert in opera or music as we ensure that the set and costumes make the production easy to follow.

“The music is beautiful and sometimes even if you’re lost in the plot, just close your eyes and enjoy the music.”

Both performances start at 7.45pm, with tickets priced at £30.50 (£28.50 for concessions), and available from www.opera-tickets.co.uk and www.gordon-craig.co.uk
