Revival of the 1999 co-production with Welsh National Opera

In the sultry heat of Seville, passions are high and drama is around every corner – and a hot-blooded tale of seduction and obsession is about to unfold.

When Don José, a young soldier, meets the sensual and high-spirited Carmen, thoughts of marrying his childhood sweetheart are driven from his mind. But Don José is not the only one to fall for Carmen’s charms, and when she chooses another man, she sets in motion a shocking and unmissable showdown.

From the ‘Habanera’ to the rousing ‘Toreador’s Song’, Bizet’s brilliant music pulls you right into the action of this passionate love story. With a star-studded cast including 2015 International Opera Award winner Justina Gringyte, one of the world’s most talked-about tenors Noah Stewart, and Roland Wood, direct from the drama of 2015’s Il trovatore, this is an unforgettable evening not to be missed.
