Beware the attentions of Carmen

Why See Carmen?

Classical & Opera

The Ultimate Femme Fatale

Passion overtakes the Seattle Opera as they gear up to present the most seductive opera in the repertoire - Georges Bizet's irresistible Carmen. Red hot and bursting with sizzling melodies and songs and a storyline that captures inflamed desire and terrible obsession, discover again (or for the first time) just why the world cannot get enough of this divine, dangerous and devious beauty!

The story of Carmen

Carmen is a provocative Gyspy woman, whose short temper brings her to the attention of the kind and charismatic Don Jose, who falls head over heels in love with her. An intense tale of love found and ruthlessly taken, Carmen is an intense and passionate piece, as lust and revenge go hand in hand making for a fiery finale.
