"Carmen" at the 100th Arena di Verona Opera Festival 2023

Carmen in brief

«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!).
