Opera in four acts (1875)
New Production! Passions simmer and tensions fray in Olivier award-winning director Damiano Michieletto's powerful new staging of Bizet’s scorching, ever-popular opera, a co-production with Teatro Real and La Scala.
The free-spirited Carmen (brilliant mezzo-soprano Aigul Akhmetshina) declares that any man she loves should beware. However, even she is unprepared for what will happen when she decides to seduce Don José (Piotr Beczala), who is willing to risk it all for her – at whatever cost.
Evoking all the lust, passion and heat of Bizet's score, which features Carmen’s sultry ‘Habanera’ and the rousing ‘Toreador Song’, Antonello Manacorda conducts an exciting international cast.
