‘Carmen’ at Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg
On March 6, 8, and 10, Michael Fabiano will perform the role of Don José in Georges Bizet’s sensuous and tragic opera Carmen at the Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg.
A signature role of Mr. Fabiano’s, he has garnered high praise for his portrayal of Don José with OperaWire writing “Fabiano’s command of the role was captivating, a tour de force of phenomenal singing informed by deep psychological and dramatic understanding. Most notable was the complexity of his performance and the complete earnestness he brought to the role.” This will be his first of three productions of Carmen this season with performances at Washington National Opera and Santa Fe Opera later in the year.
This dark and psychological production by Dmitri Tcherniakov, which premiered at the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence in 2017, will also feature a sensational cast including Ève-Maud Hubeaux as Carmen, Anne-Catherine Gillet as Micaëla, Jean-Sébastien Bou as Escamillo, Jean-Fernand Setti as Zuniga, Pierre Doyen as Moralès, Louise Foor as Frasquita, Angélique Noldus as Mercédès, Guillaume Andrieux as Le Dancaïre, Enguerrand De Hys as Le Remendado and Pierre Grammont with José Miguel Pérez-Sierra leading the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg.
