In the colourful streets of a colonial city, Carmen is a red hot spark.

She sings her siren song, and suddenly, Don José’s world is alight with a volatile fire.
This vibrant production of Bizet’s opera features gypsy girls and bull­fighting boys in eye-popping colours. There are smugglers in suits, parades and punches, lust and loathing aplenty.
And underneath those irresistible Spanish tunes, the dark undercurrent of fate pulses. Carmen knows she is dancing with death.

John Bell’s production is a bold look at the intense relationships at the heart of Bizet’s famous opera. It hones in on the wild love that promises freedom, while binding the lovers in an unbreakable web of fate.

Paolo Carignani conducts the vivacious Rinat Shaham as opera’s favourite femme fatale, with Argentine tenor Marcelo Puente as Don Jose and Michael Honeyman as Escamillo.
Later in the season, Sian Pendry, star of last year’s Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour, reprises this famous role.
