"Toréador, en garde!" Captivating rhythms, ravishing melodies. Two machos and a powerful woman: Carmen – plus all the torrid heat of Spain. Just the right blend for passion and death. "A work of shocking immorality!" wrote one disgruntled critic after the world première. He was right – and there's nothing wrong with that. Bizet's masterwork continues to captivate.
