The Times​

Regents Opera is a leading fringe Opera Company specialising in the larger works of the 19th & 20th centuries. The touring company offers emerging and established singers a platform to perform major repertoire not often staged outside the major houses.

Bizet’s ‘Carmen’ tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who falls head over heels in love with Carmen, a seductive, free-spirited femme fatale. The infatuated Don José abandons his childhood sweetheart and neglects his military duties, only to lose the fickle Carmen to the glamorous toreador Escamillo.

Directed by Paul Higgins of Glyndebourne Festival Opera and the Royal Opera House, this outstanding production features four cast members and stars renowned Greek mezzo soprano Kassandra Dimopoulou as Carmen and Howard Hutt as her Don Jose, accompanied by talented pianist and Musical Director Ben Woodward.
