Can a consumptive courtesan and a naive nobleman find love together? Or will the fates (and his family) strive to keep them apart? More info

A holiday treat for younger opera fans and a fabulous family outing!

Full of surreal characters and settings, this opera is a feast for both the ears and eyes! More info

Metropolitan Opera House : Closes 7th March 2015

The Met's hit production of Bizet's Carmen returns with two of its leading ladies, Anita Rachvelishvili and Elina Garanca! Anita Rachvelishvili made a sensational Met debut in 2010 as the feisty and seductive gypsy. An agent provocatrix, Carmen lures a young soldier away from his innocent betrothed Micaela, and toys with his emotions as she frequently withdraws her affections and flirts with other men, driving Jose wild with jealousy. Not one to be tied down to love, she is determined to live freely, love freely - and to die freely. More info
