Canadian Carmen at The State Opera

Audience members will discover a new face in the title role of one of their most favourite opera. Bizet's Carmen is the first performance of the new opera season 2015/2016 starring Canadian mezzo-soprano Mireille Lebel. Friday's performance under the baton of Tomáš Brauner will be her Czech debut. Alongside Mireille Lebel as Don José the Argentinean tenor Raul Gabriel Iriarte will also debut in his role at The State Opera; he has already sang the role of Faust in Boito's Mefistofele.
