Synopsis: The Royal Opera House of London’s presentation of CARMEN. The Spanish heat and gypsy passion of CARMEN comes to life in Francesca Zambello’s production recreating the sun-drenched and sensual world of 19th century Spain, with its ranks of soldiers and crowds of peasants, its gypsies and bullfighters, its spectacle and its deadly, white-hot emotions. At the heart of the story of one woman’s tangled relationship with two men is Carmen herself, played by the fabulous singer-actor Anna Caterina Antonacci. The great Italian soprano is matched by two devilishly handsome men as her love interest; steamingly sexy German tenor, Jonas Kaufmann and the smoldering Italian baritone Ildebrando D’Arcangelo.
