Carmen - Opera at the Sydney Opera House

In the colourful streets of a colonial city, Carmen is a red hot spark. She sings her siren song, and suddenly, Don José’s world is alight with a volatile fire. This vibrant production of Bizet’s opera features gypsy girls and bullfighting boys in eye-popping colours. There are smugglers in suits, parades and punches, lust and loathing aplenty. And underneath those irresistible Spanish tunes, the dark undercurrent of fate pulses. Carmen knows she is dancing with death. John Bell’s bold production looks at the intense relationships at the heart of Bizet’s famous opera. Watch as their wild love binds the lovers in an unbreakable web of fate.
