Community ENO Live: Carment (Bizet)
Wednesday 1 July7.30pm
ENO Live: Carmen (Bizet)

Probably the most popular opera in the world.  Carmen scandalised its earliest audiences with its raw depiction of lust in 19th-century Seville.  In ENO’s popular production, the action is a full-on battle of the sexes, fought out in the arena of the Spanish bullring.
