Category: Music & Theatre Dates: Thursday, 21 February 2013 to Sunday, 03 March 2013 Bizet's Carmen, one of the most famous operas of all time, is coming to the Royal Albert Hall for a special in-the-round production from February 21st to March 3rd 2013. Following highly acclaimed seasons in 2002, 2005 and 2009, the show is returning for a limited run of 14 performances, with a pair of talented casts set to bring the passionate and dramatic story of the titular gypsy girl to life. Channeling a quintessentially Iberian essence, Bizet's timeless score includes iconic compositions such as Flower Song, Seguidilla and the Song of the Toreador. David Freeman will direct the show, while Cristina Nassif and Antonia Sotgiu will share the eponymous role of Carmen herself. Those planning to attend can take advantage of the 3 Nights for the Price of 2 offer at The Milestone Hotel, which allows luxury London hotel guests to stay for a third night in a beautifully appointed suite at no additional cost.
