    A thrilling tale of passion and jealousy

    The English National Opera presents a thrilling revival of Carmen at the London Coliseum this year.

    Jamie Manton directs Calixto Bieito’s acclaimed production, which transports Bizet’s opera to 1970s Spain at the end of Franco’s regime. The beautiful and passionate Carmen is desired by every man she meets. But when she crosses paths with soldier Don José, she finds herself in danger as desire turns to violent obsession.

    French composer Georges Bizet’s Carmen opera is one of the most-performed in the classical canon. Even amongst those who have never seen it, the arias featured in Carmen such as “March of the Toreadors” and “Habanera” are hugely well known.

    At the London Coliseum, Bizet’s score is conducted by Kerem Hasan. The Carmen London cast includes Ginger Costa-Jackson as Carmen, Sean Panikkar as Don José, Nmon Ford as Escamillo, Sophie Bevan as Micaela and Keel Watson as Zuniga.

    Strung across Bizet's heart-soaring score, Carmen opera tickets will transport you to the unforgettable heat and passion of mid-century Spain.

    Running time: 2 hours 45 minutes

    Age recommendation: Best for age 15+

    Justina Gringyte and Sean Panikkar are excellent leads, great voices and take you in as Carmen and Don Jose. Great support from the other players as well. The staging was 1970's Spain and shows that the story is, unfortunately, eternal. If you've never been to the opera before this is a great start.

    Not as colourful as I had thought it should be & wasn’t keen on a blond Carmen, although it was performed well it could have been more exciting in set design, the bull was great... the 1990’s one was much better though...
