Seville, 1820. A gypsy is determined to live life on her own terms - whatever her fate may be. From its scandalous 1875 premiere in Paris to its current position as one of the most popular operas in the world, Carmen has enthralled generation after generation.
Bizet's masterpiece blends passion, seduction, jealousy, dance, and even a little law-breaking, all set to one of the most famous scores ever composed.
Come experience this most vivid of operas, performed by a dynamic young cast.
