Adrian Tamburini returns home for Carmen

Adrian Tamburini returns home for Carmen Image

By Melissa Chung

Adrian Tamburini is returning to Melbourne with Opera Australia to deliver John Bell’s fiery “Carmen” at the Arts Centre Melbourne from May 4 -26.  

Carmen is a three-hour performance about a love triangle featuring a seductive femme fatale in a world of smugglers.

Adrian Tamburini, playing the role of Zuniga (army officer), said the playing a serious role was very different from the usual comic roles that he performs.

The bass-baritone said Zuniga was not the hardest role that he had played, but was definitely big enough for him to show his talents.

“This role is big enough to make it interesting and allow me to go into character,” he said.

Mr Tamburini was born in Melbourne and has spent the last 10 years living in Sydney while working with Opera Australia. He is incredibly excited about being able to perform at home. “I love it because my friends and family can finally come!” he said.

Adrian also performed in Melbourne six years ago for La Bohème, which he described as a “dream come true”.

“Growing up in Melbourne’s choirs, I always dreamt to perform at the State Theatre. It was a dream come true for me to perform there with all my friends and family watching,” he said.

After Carmen, Mr Tamburini will travel to Sydney and rehearse for The Marriage of Figaro Australian tour, which begins in Geelong on July 8.
