Bizet’s tragedy Carmen is one of the most popular operas of all time – a tale of passion, jealousy and freedom.
Jeremy Silver conducts, with director Mathilde Lopez returning to Longborough following “a punky take” (★★★★ The Times) on Cavalli’s La Calisto in 2019, for what promises to be a radical version of a much-loved classic.
Vienna State Opera Award-winning Margaret Plummer makes her Longborough debut in the title role, with Peter Gijsbertsen (La traviata 2018) as Don José, and featuring the Longborough Youth Chorus.
Please note that this production contains adult themes.
