«Près des remparts de Séville» and in the heart of Verona, Franco Zeffirelli’s historical Carmen makes its comeback (23 June - 6 September), with costumes by Anna Anni and sets by El Camborio.
Five shows to be captivated by the allure of a breathtaking Seville, and by Carmen, the rebel gypsy who chases freedom, embraces life, risk and passion without reserves, never lies, and cautions her suitors like this: «Si tu ne m’aimes pas, je t’aime/Si je t’aime, prends garde à toi!» (If you don’t love me, I will love you/If I love you, then beware!).
