Arguably the most popular opera in the world, Bizet’s Carmen has come a long way from the shocked reception it received at its opening. Now recognised as a masterpiece of beauty and intoxicating music, Bizet’s Carmen is given a make-over at the Opéra National de Paris with a brand-new – and long awaited – production. See the violent passion crushed by a blazing Spanish sun on the big screen, and marvel at the talent of conductor Philippe Jordan.
