Mezzo-soprano Aigul Akhmetshina leads the cast as the iconic gypsy of the title - a woman desired by every man but determined to remain true to herself. Vittorio Grigolo is Don José, the soldier who falls under her spell and sacrifices everything for her love, only to be cast aside when the swaggering bullfighter Escamillo (Erwin Schrott) piques Carmen’s interest. Maestro Pier Giorgio Morandi is on the podium to conduct the opera’s classic score, which features one instantly recognizable melody after another.

A second run of performances in 2025 features mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges alongside tenor Freddie De Tommaso and baritone Christopher Maltman, conducted by Marco Armiliato.

Georges Bizet (1838–1875) is best remembered for his masterpiece and final work Carmen, one of the most popular operas in today’s repertory. Born in Paris to a musical family, Bizet showed exceptional early talent and was admitted to the Paris Conservatoire before he was 10. He was a brilliant student and quickly won a succession of prizes, culminating in the Prix de Rome in 1857. During his brief career, Bizet composed about thirty operas, many of which remained unfinished.

The libretto for Carmen is by Henri Meilhac (1831–1897) and Ludovic Halévy (1834–1908) and is based on a novella by Prosper Mérimée (1803–1870), a French dramatist, historian, and archaeologist.
