In a large-scale outdoor arena spectacular, Bizet’s masterpiece, Carmen, will be performed by over 150 singers and musicians.
The historic WACA ground, the scene of many epic conflicts, plays host to the loves, betrayals, celebrations and tragedies of one of opera’s greatest stories.
Carmen is a bold, daring working-class woman, a free spirit. She sets her sights on Escamillo inciting jealousy in Don José.
