An enduringly popular opera, Carmen is a parade of hit tunes set in an exotic locale with a fearless heroine. Vital and dangerous, Carmen will be free at any cost, setting the path to the opera’s gripping conclusion.

This production by Lindy Hume - well-known here for her brilliantly theatrical productions of Lucia di Lammermoor, Rigoletto and La Cenerentola - is sexy and sensual with all the things you would expect from Bizet’s ravishing opera.
