Bizet’s Carmen tells the story of the naive soldier, Don José who abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts the army when he falls under the alluring gypsy’s spell. When he loses her love to the dashing toreador Escamillo, the scene is set for jealousy and vengeance.

Bizet’s seductive melodies and fiery Spanish rhythms conjure a world of desire, defiance and doom, in some of the world’s best-loved music, including the arias ‘Habanera,’ ‘Seguidilla,’ ‘Flower Song’ and ‘Toreador Song.’
