Every moment of the opera is characterised by verbal exchanges, emotional dialectic, feelings both open and hid- den, joyful texts and immanent bodies. e themes and meanings of the opera are the reason why colour, and especial- ly red, was taken as the protagonist of the opera itself: Carmen is a bundle of vital elements, constantly emerging, in every page of the score.
Every part of the set is connected to an imaginary world where singers will turn words and events into gestures which will be symbolically connected to the nature of their passions.
