Welsh National Opera: Carmen

27 & 29 February 2020

Donald Gordon Theatre

No man can resist the charms of opera’s ultimate seductress, Carmen.

Carefree and spirited, she is determined to keep her independence, so when she enchants the soldier, Don José, who sacrifices his old life for her, she is unprepared for the events that will evolve.

Bored, she turns her attention to the handsome Escamillo, and Don José’s jealousy erupts into a thrilling finale.

Jo Davies’ new production, set in the recent past, will bring all the passion and drama expected of this iconic opera. Bizet’s alluring music, from the famous Toreador Song to Carmen’s provocative Habanera, exposes the emotion of the characters to create a tension that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Sung in French, with English and Welsh surtitles.
