She creates a hunger in men. But will it now consume her? Carmen is a searing depiction of a woman who craves love, but creates obsession and jealousy.
One of the most popular operas ever written, Bizet’s score is bursting with passionate melodies and includes such famous numbers as the ‘Habanera’, ‘Toreador’s Song’ and ‘Flower Song’. Calixto Bieito’s production explores the complex relationships between the sexes at the tail-end of Franco’s regime in the 1970s. ENO Mackerras Fellow Valentina Peleggi conducts.
Co-production with Den Norske Opera and Ballet.
‘The audience is palpably gripped by the action’ ★★★★
