Georges Bizet

A masterpiece of obsession and self-destruction.


Opera North’s Create Your Own Package

A Season Ticket at The Lowry is a fantastic way to save money and experience an extraordinary year of opera.


Bizet’s enduringly popular opera tells the story of a woman on the margins of society, driven by a fierce, uncompromising desire for personal liberty, and of a man who, in the grip of sexual obsession, tries to own her.

Its sensuality, stark emotional realism and brutal violence outraged many in its first audiences, and it was widely condemned. Almost 150 years later, Carmen still presents a challenge to contemporary sensibilities, whilst Bizet’s music – overflowing with passion, colour, energy and unforgettable melody – continues to mesmerise.

Garry Walker conducts his first production as Opera North’s Music Director, and Edward Dick directs, following his triumphant Tosca in 2018.
