“I was born free and free I shall die!” Carmen, always iconic, still speaks to us.
Combining Spanish passion with French lyricism, the timeless classic unveils a story of passion, destiny but above all freedom — liberty! — and one unforgettable woman who lives and loves by it, a man consumed by her, and the woman who tries to save him. The unforgettable music stays in the mind and rhythms pound in the heart for days afterwards. Featuring a stellar cast, Carmen is given a modern sheen with an innovative nested rotating set embellished with creative lighting.
