“Carmen” is set in the vibrant world of Seville, Spain, and revolves around the tempestuous relationship between the captivating gypsy, Carmen, and the passionate soldier, Don José. Their love affair is fueled by desire, jealousy, and fate, leading to a tragic and unforgettable conclusion.

Bizet’s music is a captivating blend of French lyricism and Spanish folk influences, bringing to life the sultry rhythms of the Habanera and the thrilling melodies of the Toreador Song. The orchestra weaves a rich tapestry of emotion, seamlessly connecting the characters’ inner turmoil with the fiery Spanish setting.

The opera’s iconic arias and ensembles, including “L’amour est un oiseau rebelle” (Habanera) and “Votre toast, je peux vous le rendre” (Toreador Song), have transcended time and culture, becoming beloved classics of the operatic repertoire.

Let us sweep you away by the passion, drama, and unforgettable music that have made this opera a timeless favourite. Witness the tragedy and allure of Carmen’s character as she navigates her tumultuous fate, and experience the indelible impact of Bizet’s Carmen as it continues to captivate audiences across the globe.
