Carmen

Don’t miss this revival of Sir Richard Eyre’s dynamic production. Mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine plays opera’s ultimate seductress, while Roberto Alagna returns to the role of Don José, the good-hearted soldier in whom she unleashes an uncontrollable passion.

Don José breaks the law, goes to prison, deserts the army and loses everything to be with Carmen. But the capricious Carmen gypsy soon tires of him and takes up instead with the bullfighter Escamillo—bass  (Alexander Vinogradov). She has ruined his life, but still Don José adores her, with a fierceness that can only lead to catastrophe.  

Composer Bizet died just three months after Carmen’s disastrous premiere, never knowing that his creation would become one of the most popular operas of all time.

Tickets £18, Concessions £17. Offer £15 when you buy 4 different ROH or Met Opera tickets together. (Only available through the Box Office.)
