Don José falls in love with the feisty gypsy girl Carmen. But Carmen's love runs free - it cannot be confined. José's blood begins to boil with revenge... Bizet's eternal classic is the most popular opera of all time.
This time, the FNO production sets Carmen in 1930s Spain, before the civil war. The acclaimed French director Arnaud Bernard's cinematic vision overflows with sensuality and is rich in action. Powerful scenes follow one another with amazing intensity and brilliance.
