This is what they say:

A reimagining of Bizet’s famous masterpiece by Peter Brook.
 Collaborating with composer Marius Constant, Brook focused his work on the tragic tale of the four characters who lie at the heart of the original piece. Their intense interaction creates a moving and thought-provoking drama, filled with much of Bizet’s wonderful music including Carmen’s Habanera, Escamillo’s Toreador Song and Don José’s Flower Song. A familiar tale, but not as you expect it…


Opera tickets

Please note: we no longer issue actual tickets. We simply maintain a register of those who have bought tickets and tick people off as they come in. Those familiar to opera at Court Garden will know that we rarely collected tickets. So a small saving to benefit the Charity.
