Carmen (captured at the Royal Opera House)



With Anna Caterina Antonacci and Jonas Kaufmann bringing rare and erotic intensity to the drama of Carmen and Don José, this Royal Opera production is a darkly passionate and sumptuously exotic reading of one of the world’s favourite operas. Under the baton of Music Director Antonio Pappano, Bizet’s irresistible score drives the tragedy forward, in this powerful landmark staging of a musical masterpiece.
