World-class opera in a spectacular setting: Opera Australia’s Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour presents Bizet’s Carmen in all its sizzling passion. Rinat Shaham stars as the sexy and capricious Carmen, taunting the men around her, even as she delights in their adulation.

But after attacking another woman at the cigarette factory with a knife, Carmen has to turn her seductive wiles on her guard, Don José, to escape going to prison. Passion and desire turn to jealousy and rage when Don José discovers he has a rival, the famous toreador Escamillo; at the gates of the bullring, Carmen must choose between her lovers, her liberty and her life.
