Prosper Mérimée is struggling with his latest novella, when his leading character - Carmen - turns up in his study, larger than life, with a band of musicians in tow and chaos in her wake. Which of them controls the narrative? And what will happen when Carmen discovers the nasty ending Mérimée has planned for her?
A fun-filled performance of fantasy, comedy, drama and tremendous music arranged from Bizet's Carmen and Spanish and Spanish-
inspired music by Boccherini, de Falla,
de Lorca, Granados, Ravel and Albéniz.
Clare Norburn returns with another fascinating creation, following the fascinating Burying the Dead performed in 2018.
