King's Head Theatre, London
Running Time: 2 hours
The Olivier Award nominated producers of La Traviata, La bohème and Tosca present a vivid, compelling and devastatingly powerful take on Georges Bizet's masterpiece, Carmen.
Carmen works minimum wage jobs on the frontline of Britain's crumbling service industry. Jose falls madly in love with her after a brief fling. As his passion morphs into something uglier, and far more troubling, Carmen realises she might have made a fatal mistake?
Sung in English, and blending stark emotional realism with some of the world's most beloved music, this highly original new production examines toxic relationships in a society on the brink of collapse.
Venue: King's Head Theatre Pub, 115 Upper St, London N1 1QN
