The ultimate femme fatale is here to stamp her feet, toss her hair and dance. Will she love Don José? Maybe. Will you fall for her sultry Habañera? Definitely.

In the heat, dust and danger of the city, fiery Carmen sings her siren song. With each seductive note, the guileless Don José is drawn into her world: a world of smugglers in suits, a world outside society's bounds.

This new take on Bizet's famous opera hones in on the relationships at its heart, on the wild love that promises freedom while binding the lovers in an unbreakable web of fate.
