Why Watch Carmen

Set in a timeless version of Seville, Don Josè is training for the priesthood in his native Basque country. He suddenly kills a man in a quarrel and has to enlist in Seville's army. His mother and Micaëla, the girl who loves him and hopes to marry him, follow him to the south and reside in a village, near the city.

This French Opera has the ultimate femme fatale returning to the stage, where she tosses her hair and stomps her feet, and the whole world seems to fall under her spell. Revel in irresistible Spanish tunes, a sultry story, and the dark undercurrent of Carmen. Find out how Carme's and Don Josè's life intertwine, and the future of Don Josè.

Enjoy Seamless Journey To and From Cockatoo Island and Best Seats

The ferry will pick up guests from Darling Harbour and drop them off at the island, providing stunning views of the harbor along the way. Upon the conclusion of the show, the ferry will return guests to their original departure point, eliminating the need for additional transportation arrangements.

Choose from three seating options: the intimate and exclusive premium reserve seating, where you'll be just feet away from the action; the A reserve seating with an unbeatable view of the stage; or the general B reserve seating for a more budget-friendly option.
