About this event
Carmen is an Opera in four acts by a French composer Georges Bizet, which has become one of the best-known plots with the most memorable music.
Basing their work on Prosper Merimee's novella, librettists Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halevy have fashioned a timeless story of love, jealousy, and violence in the Spanish city of Seville during the 19th century.
It tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who is seduced by Carmen, a seductive, free-spirited femme fatale. José abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts from his military duties, yet loses Carmen's love to the glamorous toreador Escamillo, after which José kills her in a jealous rage.
The music of Carmen has been widely acclaimed for its brilliance of melody, harmony, atmosphere and orchestration, and for the skill with which Bizet represented, musically, the emotions and suffering of his characters.
The Toreador Song is among the best known of all operatic arias.
Carmen is an opera that particularly appeals to young people, and has been a crowd favourite since its creation.
