A love-struck soldier and celebrity toreador spar for the love of the alluring gypsy Carmen in this beloved classic. Bizet’s masterpiece – an opera whose striking defiance of bourgeoisie morality resulted in scandal at its Paris premiere in 1874 – comes from the magnificent Ancient Greek Theatre of Taormina. Framed by the enduring pillars of an ancient outdoor theatre, Bizet’s opera endures, enticing audiences with its classic tale of tragic seduction.
