Anita Rachvelishvili as 'Carmen'.

Richard Eyre's mesmerising production of Bizet's steamy melodrama, Carmen, returns with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili singing her signature role of the ill-fated gypsy temptress. Aleksandrs Antonenko plays her desperate lover, the soldier Don José, and Ildar Abdrazakov is the swaggering bullfighter, Escamillo, who comes between them.

Pablo Heras-Casado conducts the irresistible score, which features one beloved and instantly recognisable melody after another.
