Britten Theatre

Michael Rosewell conductor

For our pre-Christmas offering, we present an unmissable double bill of contrasting Bizet operettas, written at either end of the composer’s career.

The wonderfully witty Le docteur Miracle – possibly the only opera to feature an omelette in a starring role! – was written by the 18-year-old Bizet for a competition run by Offenbach to find the next great French opera composer. Needless to say, the precociously talented Bizet waltzed off with the prize for this enormously entertaining romp.

Djamileh is Bizet's penultimate opera, completed just before his final masterpiece Carmen. This tale of an Egyptian slave girl’s attempts to woo her master contains some of Bizet’s most wonderful music, and has been hailed as one of the great expressions of exoticism in music.

With recent RCM productions of operettas by Offenbach and G&S receiving huge acclaim on both sides of the English channel, this is the perfect opportunity to discover a pair of hidden gems.

Tickets: £10, £20, £30, £40
