It is the best choice for opera beginners!
Bizet’s Carmen is one of the most performed operas in the world, combining Spanish passion and French lyricism. The story tells a love story that exalts freedom, liberation, and intertwined with destiny and passion. Don José throws over everything, career, honour, family, even his childhood sweetheart Micaëla, for a doomed love affair with the gipsy Carmen.
Mozart’s last opera, The Magic Flute, is also the most popular classic in the history of opera. The Queen of the Night commands the handsome prince Tamino to rescue her daughter Pamina from Sarastro, a high priest. Accompanied by the lovable Papageno and the Magic Flute, Tamino embarks on a quest to save the princess, encountering many trials and tribulations along the way. Finally, they got love through the test, and also defeated the Queen of the Night after the dark and evil.
