Originated from the novel by Prosper Mérimée, the opera Carmen was completed in the autumn of 1874. It was the last work of Georges Bizet, and also is the most popular opera on the stage in the world until now. Bizet, through his music, told us a tragic story behind brightness, and depicted the optimistic, straightforward but wild personality of a Gypsy girl, Carmen. The opera discloses the bald-faced passions, describes the eternal confrontation between men and women, shows the ruthless but beautiful life, and proves the perpetual co-existence between love and death.

Through the shifting of shapes and twisting of material, images and objects from the everyday world are taken out of context, heightened with a sense of ambiguity, asking us to look beyond what our first glance has to offer.

Ticket: VND35,000 – VND25,000 (with appropriate student ID) – free for children under 16.

Exhibition “Spirit of Friendship'

15 Nguyen U Di, Thao Dien, District 2

As an educational display, it gives recognition to how ‘friendship’ continues to further the testing and encouraging of ideas among artists, beyond what was officially understood, taught, or predominantly exhibited in Vietnam at that time, believing their art worthy of more than catering to ideological/formal and touristic (commercial) demands.

Tickets: VND 35,000 (adults) – VND 25,000 (students)
