The world’s favourite opera in 30 minutes

Carmen’s enthusiasm for dancing flamenco infuriates her neighbours. Tired of the constant clacking, they have called Don José, a policeman. The singing of the beautiful Carmen pulls Don José to the flamenco club, though Micaëla has made delicious macaroni and cheese at home. Unfortunately, Carmen doesn’t care about Don José, as he’s left in the shadow of the handsome flamenco guitarist Escamillo. Buenos días indeed – how will it all end?

In this mini opera, two singers and two musicians tell the story of Carmen in just half an hour. Children and adults alike will love the catching melodies and fiery Spanish rhythms of this ever popular opera.
