The gipsy Carmen lives her life independently of all social inhibitions and considerations. In her famous Habañera she proclaims freedom in love and also total freedom from any sort of moral obligation. That ends as her doom, because Sergeant Don José, who has fallen for her charms, is not prepared to have the same carefree attitude to love and relationships. In his jealous fury he kills the beloved object.

At first the public at the world première was shocked at the free-thinking and sexually uninhibited attitude of the title-figure and gave it a reserved reception, but after that the opera of Georges Bizet (1818-1875) after Prosper Mérimée established itself firmly in the repertoire of every opera-house. The staging of Carlos Wagner delves into a Spain full of the dark images of Francisco de Goya. In riveting scenes in which nightmarish reality and a dreamworld join hands, he tells us Carmen’s fateful story.
