    Proud, fiery and defiant, Carmen is a femme fatale who lives by her own rules. She draws Don José into her wild world and he falls under her spell, leaving his sweetheart, Micaëla, and his honour behind.

    When Escamillo, the strutting bullfighter arrives, jealousy pushes Don José to the brink. Passion burns brightly in this fiery tale. Bizet’s greatest opera is filled with glorious music and heart racing drama. Lindy Hume’s much-loved production will draw you into the story of power, strength, courage and love.
