"Carmen" opera is starting on the Historical stage at this moment. Stage-director Alexei Borodin shared his view on the legendary masterpiece:
"When I get asked what would my "Carmen" look like, would it be classical or edgy performance, I answer: the most important goal for our staging is to be alive. The hardest thing is the insane popularity of this opera. Seems like everyone know what this opera is about and how you should sing it and act it. That is why our goal is to become free and not to lose the nature of acting".
Musical Director Tugan Sokhiev will be conducting, "Carmen" will become his first full repertoire performance prepared by himself at The Bolshoi.
