Bizet's Carmen, performed by Opera Brava


3rd August 2024

Opera in Chatsworth garden: Carmen

Spend a summer evening in the Rose Garden watching Bizet's Carmen, performed by Opera Brava and accompanied by a full orchestra


3rd August 2024 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Carmen tells the story of a hopeless soldier, Don José, who is seduced by Carmen, a fiery gypsy woman with an appetite for smuggling. Abandoning his childhood sweetheart and turning his back on his military career, the opera follows José in his pursuit of Carmen’s attention. Though despite his efforts and desperation, Don José’s quest for love doesn’t end quite how he’d hoped…

A dramatic tale of love, jealousy and tragedy, Bizet‘s Spanish-inflected score is bursting with passionate melodies and famous numbers such as Carmen’s seductive ‘Habanera’ and Escamillo’s ‘Toreador song’.
