One of the most favoured operas, Carmen tells the story of naïve soldier Don José who is lured away from his beloved by the gypsy factory-girl Carmen, whom he allows to escape from custody. Staged by Argentine director Valentina Carrasco, this modern interpretation of Bizet’s classic opera-comique is performed in the enchanting setting of the Terme di Caracalla in Rome, the archaeological site of the Roman Baths where a unique theatrical stage comes to life.
