Carmen in Delfzijl

George Bizet/Henri Meilhac & Ludovic Halevy

In 2010 Delfzijl served as a backdrop for a unique spectacle, a modern open air version of Bizet's opera Carmen was presented by IVAK in collaboration with Opera Spanga. Director Corina van Eijk stirred up the sober town of Delfzijl with this larger-than-life crime of passion. For this project young people worked together with seasoned professionals.
