London theatre tickets for Carmen, which is widely considered to be one of the most popular and most frequently staged operas of all time, will undoubtedly be as desirable as the hunger the protagonist creates in men and the love she desires.

Calixto Bieito’s production, in collaboration with Den Norske Opera and Ballet, explores the complexity of the relationships between the sexes in the 1970s at the tail-end of Franco’s regime. It is an examination of a woman who craves love but instead creates jealousy and obsession. She invokes a hunger in men but risks being consumed by it herself.

One of the most well-known operas of all time boasts an unforgettable score from the masterful Georges Bizet, who sadly died just three months after the premiere of Carmen in 1875 and therefore never knew of the true achievement he made with this indisputable masterpiece. His score is accompanied by a brilliant libretto from Ludovic Halévy and Henri Meilhac and bursts with unbelievably passionate melodies. With numerous ear-catching numbers, including the immensely popular ‘Habanera’ along with ‘Toreador’s Song’ and ‘Flower Song’, you’ll be humming the tunes of Bizet’s score long after the curtain falls.
