One of the most famous seductresses of all time is about to make her triumphant return. The ultimate diva, the gypsy Carmen can ignite men’s desires and fill their hearts with passion at a single glance. When Don José, a naïve soldier fighting in the Spanish Civil War, gets caught in her web, jealousy rages and anarchy reigns supreme.
The thrilling score by French composer Georges Bizet includes some of the most popular and recognizable music in all of opera, including Habanera and The Toreadors Song.From its lighthearted beginnings to its tragic and destined climax, Carmen is not to be missed.
