Carmen at the WACA in 2023

Bizet’s operatic masterpiece Carmen is coming to the iconic WACA Ground in West Australian Opera’s new arena spectacular, presented in association with Perth Festival, from 24- 25 February 2023.

Carmen at the WACA is set to be one of the hottest tickets in town this summer and audiences can expect the searing passions of Spain in a large-scale fully staged outdoor production.

Chris van Tuinen, West Australian Opera’s Artistic Director, notes:

We’ve leapt at the chance to bring Carmen back to the people of Western Australia. Whether you’re a first- time opera goer, an opera or a cricket tragic, this production will thrill audiences in Perth’s most beloved sporting ground.

Ashlyn Tymms stars in the title role as Carmen alongside over 150 singers and musicians bringing the story to life through hits such as the famous Habanera and Toreador’s Song.

Featuring the epic sound of West Australian Opera Chorus, the WAO Children’s Chorus and the full might of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, Carmen at the WACA is an experience not to be missed!

Carolyn Chard, West Australian Opera’s Executive Director:

The support of our stakeholders is key to being able to present this large-scale event and, in particular, I would like to acknowledge the federal government support through the RISE initiative, Principal Partner Wesfarmers Arts, the Perth Festival, the West Australian Symphony Orchestra and the WACA Ground management and staff.

Chard continued, highlighting:

This epic event will be livestreamed for patrons who may not be able to attend the performance in person. I’d like to thank everyone who previously purchased for the February 2022 which was interrupted by COVID19 and note that patrons who previously purchased for this show will be offered a pre-sale window.

Tickets go on-sale to the general public at 2pm on Monday 15 August.
