Dare to meet the toughest lady on the streets of opera?

Carmen is a hitlist of an opera with a rebel of a woman in the centre. A hundred years before the hippies proclaimed ‘make love, not war’, she demands the radical freedom to love – who, what and when she wishes. Ever wonder why Bizet’s Carmen is one of the world’s most popular operas? Come meet the woman who outwits them all!

Carmen does not want to be seduced; she wants to do the seducing. Love is like a rebellious bird that no one can tame, she sings, like a lawless gypsy child. To this woman, all that matters is freedom – including the freedom to be a woman in her own way. This provokes Corporal Don José to no end. At the same time, he is obsessed with making her his own, his property. But Carmen will never let herself be chained down ...
