Year in, year out, Georges Bizet’s Carmen works its magic around the world. With her unashamed sensuality, the popular opera heroine still has the power to stir our imaginations. According to Robert Carsen, who is directing this immensely successful production of Carmen, the opera has an intrinsic ‘Spanishness’. Far from the superficial, kitschy picture-postcard image of Seville, the French Bizet managed to capture the true Spanish soul in his music.
