carmen on cockatoo island tickets-2

Witness the ultimate femme fatale comeback, set in a timeless version of Seville. Watch Carmen toss her hair and stomp her feet, as the whole world seems to fall under her spell.

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.
