Katherine Jenkins: to perform Carmen at Llangollen next July

The 35-year-old Welsh songstress, due to give birth this autumn, had a craving to perform Carmen. And guess what? Her wish is coming true.

The singer has never performed in a full opera, but she is to play the troublesome gypsy siren in a fully orchestrated concert production of Bizet’s masterpiece at the Eisteddfod festival in Llangollen next July.
