The Sedona International Film Festival will present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Carmen on the Lake” from the magnificent Bregenz Lake Stage in Austria. There will be one show on Saturday, June 5 at 1 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Performed on the spectacular water stage of Lake Constance in Bregenz, George Bizet’s “Carmen” is a story of passion, destiny, and obsession.
The French composer’s opera is most famous for its Spanish melodies, including the Flower Song, Habanera, and the Toreador Song.
Experience “Carmen” like never before — recorded live on the floating stage during the Bregenz Festival. As with their previous spectacular productions, you can expect the staging of this classic tale to have an extravagantly original and innovative design, with the waters of the lake being used as an extension of the stage.
This production of “Carmen” is directed by Kasper Holten, Director of the Opera at the Royal Opera House in London, with the set designed by the British artist Es Devlin.
“Carmen on the Lake” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Saturday, June 5 at 1 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members and students.
