Bizet: Carmen

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Passion, jealousy and betrayal take center stage at London's Royal Opera House in a spectacular production of the world's most popular opera. Bizet's Carmen is packed with some of the best-loved and memorable music in all of opera.

In this characteristically vivid and vibrant stage production by Francesca Zambello, Seville is brought to life with ranks of soldiers, crowds of peasants, gypsies and bullfighters - as well as a magnificent horse, a donkey and even some chickens! This spectacular RealD and Royal Opera House production features a supremely talented cast, gripping drama and Bizet's energetic and passionate score. It is truly a musical event to remember!

Press Reviews

"This staging lends itself specially well to film in many ways. It's as colourful as the music...Rice's dark good looks make her a good choice for the part. Her singing is precise and attractive...Argiris's Escamillo is much deeper than the usual flashy image...Kovalevska's Micaëla on the other hand was superb from beginning to end." (Opera Today)

"Looking radiant and singing superbly, [Kovalevska] brought great depth and passion to the role with a faultless performance." (The Daily Express)

"... an earthily alluring Carmen from Christine Rice." (The Guardian)
