Long Yu Conducts Carmen in Concert
In the SSO's 2019/20 season closing concert, artistic director and chief conductor of the China Philharmonic and of the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra Long Yu will lead the SSO in performing Georges Bizet's 120-minute-long concert version of French opera Carmen. It is set in southern Spain and tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen. Expect a season-defining performance.
