In the heart of the Judean Desert, at the foot of Masada, one of the most familiar and beloved operas of all times is coming to life - Carmen, by French composer Georges Bizet.

Breathtaking, enchanting views of the Judean Desert overlooking the Dead Sea and the clear starry sky serve as the backdrop to the fiery Carmen's songs of freedom and liberty while she falls in love with the soldier Don José, who in turn loses her love to the glamorous toreador Escamillo. Intoxicating arias and turbulent Spanish dance unite in a spectacular celebration, as, under the baton of renowned conductor Daniel Oren, hundreds of performers bring to life the love, burning passion and intense hatred that constitute the famous opera.

View the exciting documentary on the building of the impressive stage, rehearsals deep in the wilderness and the fascinating debut performance through the eyes of the opera singers, flamenco dancers, the director, the conductor and the people who created the vision of Carmen in the desert.
