One of the most popular operas ever produced comes to The Lowry stage next month for one night only in an unmissable performance for any theatre lover.

Carmen, which shocked audiences upon its 1875 debut in Paris with its stark emotional realism, is a tale of lust, desire and tragedy.

Opera North’s fiery production follows the story of Carmen, a strong woman doing everything she can to survive in a poor frontier town—including manipulating and seducing the very men who intend to control her. However, one man’s obsession with Carmen quickly turns into wild jealousy with tragic consequences.

Directed by the returning Edward Dick, whose five-star Tosca entranced audiences in 2018, crowds can expect emotionally charged, flamenco-infused melodies including the ‘Habanera’ and Toreador Song that’ll no doubt stick in the mind long after the curtain falls.

Carmen is at The Lowry on Thu 10 Mar only, alongside two stunning productions: Verdi’s dramatic masterpiece, Rigoletto (Wed 9 Mar), and Handel’s bewitching tale, Alcina (Fri 11 Mar). Tickets are on sale now and you can grab yours using the button below.

Opera North is at The Lowry 9 – 12 March.
