This year Barefoot Opera  presents Georges Bizet’s Carmen - one of opera’s most popular and unforgettable stories.

We are especially delighted to host children from the Dolphin School in Hurst who will sing in the chorus.  This is a first for the Wooburn Festival and compliments our ambitions to engage the younger generation in classical music.

Georges Bizet - Carmen

Community Hall, Bourne End, SL8 5SX

Tickets £18, Students £5

The Barefoot Opera company never fails to impress, entertain and inform us with their flair for visually and musically stunning presentation and the vitality of the professional singers starting out on their operatic careers.

Georges Bizet’s Carmen was first performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris on 3 March 1875, where its breaking of conventions shocked and scandalized its first audiences. Bizet died suddenly after the 33rd performance, unaware that the work would achieve international acclaim within the following ten years. Carmen has since become one of the most popular and frequently performed operas in the classical canon; the "Habanera" from Act 1 and the "Toreador Song" from Act 2 are among the best known of all operatic arias.
