An Aria A Day #132

ASHLYN TYMMS
Seguidilla
from Carmen
by Georges Bizet
Piano Raymond Yong

17th September, 2020

From the West Australian Opera Studio mezzo-soprano Ashlyn Tymms performs Carmen’s Act 1 Seguidilla. In this aria Carmen successfully attempts to seduce her captor, Don José, into setting her free.

Although this piece uses flamenco-style material, it has a slower tempo than the classic Spanish dance form and a more complex structure.

Ashlyn and Raymond perform on Wajuk Country in Western Australia ahead of WAO’s upcoming production of ‘Così fan tutte’.
