Featuring an impressive cast accompanied by a large, live orchestra with over 30 musicians, the highly acclaimed Russian State Opera returns with a mix of fierce passion and gorgeous melodies.
Feel the thrill and passion of love, jealousy and violence of 19th Century Seville in one of Bizet’s most popular pieces. The rich and colourful vigour of the gypsies’ scenes will have you on the edge of your seat, and the vibrancy, enthusiasm and intensity of the performance will reverberate long after the final curtain.
Love, treachery, passion and betrayal, Carmen has it all!
