Carmen is one of the most popular operas in the world. Now seen in a new direction by Corina van Eijk
The attractive young woman Carmen seems to have her life under control. But she is guided by fears: she is afraid of not being found attractive and she is afraid of having to deal with the people around her. And with itself. Fear of having to give up her greatest addiction, the loneliness, that hollow feeling inside.
Carmen is a wreck, she keeps herself going through alcohol and insatiable flirt parties. Don José's unconditional love for Carmen drives them both into the abyss.
