, immortalised in Bizet's operatic masterpiece, is a woman unscrupulous in her self-preservation, defiant and completely irresistible to the men that cross her path. She disarms with a sideward glance and manipulates every situation to her favour - until one of these men, Jose, falls desperately in love with her. Despite the faithful protestations of his fiancÃ©e, Michaela, Jose's fate is sealed and his uncontrollable passion for the dismissive Carmen
can only lead to disaster.Performers Didy Veldman (Carmen during the London season), Charlotte Broom, Daniel de Andrade, Charlotte Talbot, Christopher Giles, Luc Jacobs, Fiona Wallis, Jeremy Kerridge, Darren Goldsmith, Simon Kidd, Nicola Corss, Jonathan Beale.
