Carmen Disruption

Performances in Almeida Theatre from the 4th of April 2015 until the 23rd of May 2015.

In the opulent grandeur of a European city, a renowned singer abandons the opera house for the truth of the streets. A gorgeous prostitute. A tough-talking taxi driver. A global trader. A teenage dreamer. Everyone’s looking for something.

Simon Stephens’ strange and beautiful new play reimagines Bizet’s opera Carmen and the possibility of love in a fractured urban world.

Directed by Michael Longhurst (Constellations) the UK Premiere of this play marks the Almeida debut of internationally-renowned writer Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Birdland).
