The audience sits in the grandstand at Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour and looks at the floating stage.

As the sky darkens, you'll hear the orchestra tuning from under the stage. Suddenly, that famous overture fills the air, performers race onto the blood-spattered bullring and we're off. Carmen is an all-singing, all-dancing, all fireworks affair, hurtling through the thrilling story towards the final scenes that'll leave you breathless.
