Carmen, a bold, beautiful and free-spirited Romani woman. Don José, a corporal in the regiment. Escamillo, the self-confident and masculine bullfighter.
Living life on her own terms, Carmen is always unafraid of any adventures that come her way – including love. As she soon gets entangled between a jealous corporal and flirtatious toreador, the tempestuous relationship between Carmen, Don José and Escamillo culminates in one of opera's most gripping finales!
Do you know someone who has never been to an opera? Then Carmen is the perfect place to start!
It is a drama that has something for everyone, charting the extremes of emotion which anyone can empathise with through a series of irresistible tunes. Iconic ones include Habanera, Toreador Song, Parle-moi de ma mere and La fleur que tu m'avais jetee just to name a few. Even if you have never watched it, the music is instantly recognisable.
A classic and well-loved masterpiece, this is an opera not to be missed!
