Bizet's "Carmen" is one of the world's favourite operas, but scandalised 19th-century society with its raw depicition of lust. It tells the story of a fiesty gypsy arrested for attacking a fellow worker. After persuading her guard to release her on the promise of love, she then casts him aside for the glamorous toreador, Escamillo. Consumed by jealousy, Don Jose pursues Carmen to Seville with tragic consequences.

Bizet's rich and timeless score contains some of opera's best-loved numbers including the seductive "Habanera" and Escamillo's rousing "Toreador's Song".

The show will be a semi-staged performance by the cast of the Russian State Ballet and Opera Theatre, alongside a 30-piece orchestra.

Cadogan Hall is a popular venue for classical music in the heart of Chelsea. As an old converted church, the intimate stage has pew-like stalls on the ground floor and balconies up above. It seats around 900 people.
