Australian director Barrie Kosky - "a maverick whose successes include a radical staging of Handel's oratorio Saul at Glyndebourne" (Telegraph) - presents a daring new production of Carmen which is "set to shock" those who prefer a more traditional interpretation at the Royal Opera House. Jakub Hrusa and Christopher Willis conduct two casts led by Anna Goryachova and Gaelle Arquez in the title role of Bizet's passionate opera about a sensual and fiercely independent woman, who woos a young soldier away from his bride-to-be.

 

About Royal Opera House

This impressive building in the heart of Covent Garden has been playing host to major stars of the classical music world since 1858. The third theatre to be located on this site, today's Royal Opera House is the result of a reconstruction in the 1990s (although the main auditorium is part of the original building).
