What is the story of Carmen?
Carmen is a provocative Gyspy woman, whose short temper brings her to the attention of the kind and charismatic Don Jose, who falls head over heels in love with her. A thrilling tale of love found and ruthlessly taken, Carmen is one of Opera's most vivid and engaging pieces, a dance of lust and revenge that go hand in hand, making for a fiery, unforgettable finale. Coupled with Bizet's recognizable score that includes the pieces 'Habanera' Seguidilla', and 'The Toreador Song', it is no wonder that it continues to dominate 143 years after it first premiered!
