“A masterpiece in the full meaning of the word” – Composer Piotr Ilich Tchaikovsky.

Opera's great, independent, sexual woman, the gypsy Carmen. Her friends and enemies from a cigarette factory. Her lovers, high and low. A naive corporal and the good girl from home. A handsome bullfighter. Smugglers. Jealousy, and a fatal struggle. An upright soldier. On duty far from home. The femme fatale from the wrong side of the tracks. Love at first sight. A walk on the wild side. Criminality, a handsome rival, and a breaking point that leads to tragedy in the scorching Spanish sun. The colourful arias and choruses of Bizet's Carmen tell it all with irresistible, unforgettable musical panache.

(Paula Murrihy) “Her agile performance left nothing to be desired. She presented an exceptional theatrical interpretation of Carmen”Maintal Tagesanzeiger.
(Celine Byrne) “Simply extraordinary in range, depth, and texture.”The Arts Review.
