Duration 3hrs 5mins

Bewitching, wilful, earthy, Carmen is a woman who dictates her own terms, whatever the cost.

Instantly recognizable and utterly unforgettable, Carmen brims with audacious harmonies and irresistible melodies that have earned their place in popular culture.

As for the character of Carmen herself, there is no one quite like her. Wilful, charismatic, fiercely independent, she defies the razor-thin line between love and hatred, desire and death.

When Carmen fixes on Don José as her next (but certainly not her last) lover, the naïve young soldier cannot deal with his own jealousy and  possessiveness. With its beguiling heroine and music that is familiar the world over, it is no wonder that Carmen is one of the most popular operas of all time.
