About the Show/Event

Matthew Bourne's The Car Man
Information for Matthew Bourne's The Car Man at Royal Albert Hall, Inner London (Dance or ballet). The Car Man is loosely based on Bizet's popular opera and has one of the most thrilling and instantly recognisable scores in New Adventures' repertory, brilliantly arranged by Terry Davies. The familiar 19th Century Spanish cigarette factory becomes a greasy garage-diner in 1960's America where the dreams and passions of a small-town are shattered by the arrival of a handsome stranger. Fuelled by heat and desire, the inhabitants are driven into an unstoppable spiral of greed, lust, betrayal and revenge.
Age Advisory: 12+ Contains scenes of a sexual nature, brief nudity, strobe lighting and gunshots.
