Enter our competition to win a pair of tickets to ENO’s gripping production of Bizet’s famous opera.

We're giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets to Bizet’s Carmen by English National Opera in February 2020.

One of the most popular operas ever written, Carmen is a searing depiction of a woman who craves love but creates obsession and jealousy.

Bizet’s famous score is bursting with passionate melodies and includes such famous arias as the ‘Habanera’, ‘Toreador’s Song’ and ‘Flower Song’.

Calixto Bieito’s production for English National Opera explores the complex relationships between the sexes in the sizzling Spanish heat at the tail-end of Franco’s regime in the 1970s.
