ROYAL OPERA HOUSE LIVE: CARMEN This is the best-known work by French composer Georges Bizet, and one of the most famous operas in the entire art form – numbers such as the Habanera and the Toreador Song have permeated the popular consciousness as little else has.

Bizet died shortly after, and never learned of the spectacular success his Carmen would achieve. Tue 6 Mar, 6.45pm Sun 11 Mar, 2pm Tickets: £15 / £12.50 Conc & Friends English Surtitles
