The legendary tale of Carmen is given a Cuban twist in the UK premiere of Carmen La Cubana at Sadler’s Wells.
Inspired by Oscar Hammerstein II’s Broadway hit Carmen Jones, Christopher Renshaw (The King and I) directs a sizzling new musical featuring Bizet’s classic score 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, 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.
fCarmen La Cubana is booking from 1 August 2018 until 18 August 2018 at Sadler’s Wells, London
Directed by Christopher Renshaw (The King and I) with orchestration by Alex Lacamoire (Hamilton), choreography by Gonzalez Chavez and design by Tom Piper.
