Why See Ellen Kent's Carmen?

Classical & Opera

Still burning after 150 years

Lust! Jealousy! Intrigue! Murder! It can only be Georges Bizet's simmering tale of woman scorned - Carmen! Presented by the award-winning Ellen Kent productions and Opera International, give yourself over to the delectable sights and sounds of this unforgettable opera. Featuring world-famous arias including the Toreador Song and the alluring Habanera, this classic production will have you hot under the collar as it takes to the road in 2022.

What is the story of Carmen?

The opera follows Carmen, a fiery, provocative gypsy woman at odds with the conventions of Spain in the early 18th century. Able to seduce men with her dulcet tones and feminine wiles, Carmen ensnares the heart of Don Jose, who drops everything, including his betrothed Micaela, to be with her. When Carmen tires of her latest conquest, she leaves him for the handsome bullfighter Escamillo, setting off harrowing and ultimately fatal events fuelled by jealousy, obsession, and murderous rage.
