Coming up at the Assembly Hall

THERE’S non-stop entertainment at Melksham Assembly Hall with enthralling new shows and live music coming up over the next month.

On 14th September, experience Carmen like never before with Carmen On The Lake – recorded live on the floating stage during the Bregenz Festival. As with their previous spectacular productions, you can expect the staging of this classic tale to have an extravagantly original and innovative design, with the waters of the lake being used as an extension of the stage.

George Bizet’s Carmen is a story of passion, destiny and obsession. The French composer’s opera is most famous for its Spanish melodies, including the Flower Song, Habanera and the Toreador Song.

This production of Carmen will be directed by Kasper Holten, director of opera at the Royal Opera House in London, with the set designed by the British artist Es Devlin. Her past work includes sets for such stars as Adele, Take That, U2, Pet Shop Boys and Kanye West. Tickets £12, conc. £10.
