Full description
This show tells the story of a small-town boy, Don José, who is serving with the army far from home. His fellow soldiers — indeed the whole town — are captivated by the strange allure of a gypsy woman, Carmen. He thinks only of home, his mother, and the pretty Micaëla, a young girl who comes to deliver a letter from home.

Carmen has no patience for the men that fawn at her feet, but she is intrigued by the shy Don José. Arrested for beginning a fight, Carmen seduces Don José to win her freedom, and convinces him to desert the army to join her in the gypsy life of liberty.

But her wandering eye has already found another lover: the dashing bullfighter, Escamillo. Don José’s jealousy is fierce, Escamillo’s passion is determined, and Carmen’s fate is set in the cards. Watch this amazing show in an iconic venue.
