Bizet’s unforgettable tunes, re-conceived as musical theatre, stirringly bring to life the story of a dangerous, seductive Spanish heroine recklessly playing with her fate and that of her lovers at a time of civil unrest and political uncertainty.
An easily accessible, invigoratingly fresh look at perhaps the most familiar, beloved and popular operas ever written.
Young Corporal José has a girl he plans to marry back at home and a strong sense of duty. When he breaks up a fight between the cigarette factory girls on the streets of a Seville bristling with rival factions, he meets the wild and reckless gypsy, Carmen. The passion that flares between them is intense, intoxicating and deadly.
Based on the Opera Score by George Bizet,
The Libretto by Ludovic Halévy & Henri Meilhac
