More about Carmen

The London premiere of Carmen comes to the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall for an extremely limited 2 show run. International ballet superstars Natalia Osipova of The Royal Ballet and Isaac Hernández of the English National ballet star.

Prosper Mérimée’s torrid tale of love, passion and murder comes to life both on and offstage as the show begins to merge with the real lives of the show’s dancers in this modern adaptation of the French novella that inspired the classic opera.

This new show spotlights the characters and invites the audience to see Carmen, Don José and Escamillo not only on the stage, but also offstage, where the dancers have built their own relationships. The classic, tragic love story that they have been playing out is slowly seeping into their everyday lives. Acclaimed Dutch choreographer Didy Veldman makes use of hilarious quick changes as our dancers move in and out of character again and again making us less and less certain what the reality is. With strong physical movement language, theatricality and a quirky sense of humour, this production bursts with energy and shines a new light on multi-award-winning Natalia Osipova.

View Seating Plan
Queen Elizabeth Hall reopened in April 2018 following almost three years of renovations with world class, environmentally-improved new facilities for audiences and artists. The building is also home to Purcell Room a smaller, more intimate space.

The design led by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBStudios), focused on refurbishing the auditoria, foyer and artists’ back of house facilities. Improved access, ventilation and lighting systems, and new production infrastructure enhance the experience for audience and performers alike. New leather upholstery revitalises the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room’s distinctive and comfortable seating.

The building was originally opened in March 1967 by Her Majesty the Queen and this historic restoration has been made possible through generous support from Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, thanks to National Lottery players, and through Southbank Centre friends, trusts and foundations supporting the Let The Light In campaign.
