Carmen is a free spirit who refuses to be tamed. The soldier Don José knows this, yet he cannot resist. Drawn into a volatile criminal underworld, it isn’t long before the liberating force of desire meets the violent consequences of jealousy.
Damiano Michieletto’s sizzling new production evokes all the passion and heat of Bizet’s score, which features Carmen’s sultry Habanera and the rousing Toreador song. Antonello Manacorda and Emmanuel Villaume conduct an exciting international cast, with Aigul Akhmetshina and
Vasilisa Berzhanskaya sharing the title role.
