About the event

The ultimate femme fatale is here to stamp her feet, toss her hair and dance. Will she love Don José? Maybe. Will you fall for her sultry Habanera? Definitely.

In the colourful streets of a colonial city, Carmen is a red hot spark. She sings her siren song, and suddenly Don José’s world is alight with a volatile fire.

This vibrant production features glamorous girls and bullfighting boys in eye-popping colours. There are smugglers in suits, parades and punches, lust and loathing aplenty. Irresistible Spanish tunes include the famous Toreador Song and flirty Habanera. Underneath those infectious rhythms, the dark undercurrent of fate pulses. Carmen knows she is dancing with death.

John Bell’s production is a bold look at the intense relationships at the heart of this opera. It hones in on the wild love that promises freedom, while binding the lovers in an unbreakable web of fate.
