“Having seen many versions of Carmen films - all exceptionally great - it’s only a brave individual who will even attempt to stage Carmen, knowing that the expectations will be very high. However, this show has all the ingredients of being one of this year’s smash hits!! It’s a night to remember.... I love everything about this show. Absolutely brilliant!” JOSEPHINE HOWELL

“I hadn’t heard of Rogue Opera before last night. Boy! was I missing out. I was a bit skeptical about a production of Carmen with a cast of 6 ... It really worked. It was gorgeous. Great performances from the cast.” MARK CROTTY

“Excellent pared-down production ... the audience was able to focus on the characters and their motivation. Even the French was better than you often hear in major houses...” ALISON & MIKE CLASSE

Carmen | Bronwen Stephens

"An extremely talented cast in a unique intimate production” - Little London Observationist, May 2018

"The cast of six [gave] a polished performance with no weak links, switching between roles with ease. Bronwen Stephens [who] directed as well as singing Carmen, gave a strong performance. Michelle Buckley danced well [and] Music Director Varia Doletskaya gave a sensitive and tireless performance on keyboard." ALISON & MIKE CLASSE
