A riveting drama of love and jealousy, filled with famously alluring melodies and captivating dances, Carmen is one of the world’s most popular operas. Don José is lured away from his duty as a soldier – and from his beloved Micaëla – by the gypsy factory-girl Carmen. He is later induced to join the smugglers with whom Carmen is associated, but is driven wild by jealousy when Carmen makes clear her preference for the bull-fighter Escamillo. Bizet’s immortal score overflows with one delight after another, a music lover’s hit parade of opera’s most intoxicating melodies.
