Matthew Bourne's The Car Man archiveThe 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. Following the phenomenal international success of Swan Lake and Cinderella, The Car Man will make you hear Bizet's driving and sensual music as you've never heard it before.
