Itinerary

There is no better place to start this tour tan the place that inspired the third act of the opera Carmen by George Bizet, La Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza. After an introduction about Sevilla and the opera we will see the monument of Carmen. Our next stop will be the Opera House of Sevilla, where there is a monument dedicated to Mozart, who composed two operas inspired in Sevilla, Don Giovanni and The Weddings of Figaro.

Once there, it will be the time to imagine the love story of Don José and the cigarrete maker Carmen, that would begin at the Old Tobacco Factory, today the University of Sevilla. Let's enjoy this magnificent building for free inside and get to know about the old tobacco factory.

Time to get lost in the charming quarter we call Santa Cruz. Time for Fígaro and the love stories. It is a perfect place for love games and find the places that inspired "The Weedings of Figaro" by Rossini.

We will finish at the Plaza de Santa Marta where to enjoy the videos about the operas wit my Tablet.
