The opera “Carmen”, under the artistic direction of Giorgio Lalov, is about betrayal, jealousy, metamorphosis from law-abiding soldier to thief, smuggler, even murderer. America’s favorite opera sizzles with excitement as the irresistible gypsy Carmen seduces Don José, leads him from a life of respectability to one of crime, then he casts him callously aside in favor of another – with dire consequences. Bizet’s revolutionary opera is as fascinating and electrifying as ever and comes to life in Teatro Lirico D’Europa’s production of Carmen.

Teatro Lirico D’Europa was created in 1988 by the late Yves Josse, a former ballet divo and brilliant French arts promoter, and Giorgio Lalov, a young Bulgarian opera singer who made his debut at Teatro alla Scala, Milan, at the age of 25 while participating in Scala’s famous international training program for young singers. The collaboration between Josse and Lalov was a huge success in a very short time, resulting in tours with over 250 performances a season.

Lalov created the sets and costumes for the productions and organized the chorus and orchestra in Bulgaria. He drew soloists for the productions from a huge reservoir of operatic talent in Bulgaria, central Europe and the USA. Josse booked the performances for the company from his office in Paris. From the very beginning, the company established itself as highly competent in delivering traditional, full-scale productions featuring a full, professional orchestra and chorus, and professional opera singers who performed at the top national theatres in their native countries. The unusual chemistry of the company proved to be very popular with European audiences. Teatro Lirico D’Europa had completed over 2000 performances worldwide at the time of Josse’s passing in 1995.
