Carmen La Cubana tickets are now available for this sultry new take on opera.
Carmen La Cubana is a sizzling new musical featuring Bizet’s classic score flavoured with authentic Cuban styles.
In a town far from Havana on the eve of the Cuban Revolution Carmen dreams of a better life. A young soldier José is seduced into running away from his responsibilities and accompanying her to the city. Once she becomes a "Queen of Havana" she loses interest in her faithful companion and turns to charismatic boxer El Niño Martinez - with fateful consequences.
Inspired by Oscar Hammerstein II’s Broadway hit Carmen Jones, Christopher Renshaw (The King and I) directs this UK premiere, with new orchestrations by Tony Award winner Alex Lacamoire (Hamilton), mixing opera with salsa, mambo, rumba and cha-cha-cha and including musical favourites such as Habanera.
Featuring a large company of singers, dancers and musicians, Carmen La Cubana is a sultry take on one of the most famous operas ever created, set against the simmering turmoil of Revolution in Cuba, 1958.
