Gather ’round…the March of the Toreadors has begun! A beloved score, the scintillating Habanera, the sexy Seguidilla! Perhaps no other opera stirs the blood as much as the passionate tale of Carmen and her brazen love.

Georges Bizet scandalized audiences when he conjured his fiery heroine. He died before the daring Carmen became one of opera’s most famous figures and its songs the most familiar.

Let Opera North transport you to the scarlet world of Spain’s back streets, bullrings, and conflicted hearts.
