CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
A quintessentially European story, Carmen is inspired by a Russian poem, written in French as a novella about a Spanish gypsy living across national borders, and adapted to become one of the world's most performed operas which was first produced in London. Our starting point was a newly commissioned adaptation of Merimee's novella by Saviana Stanescu and Kit Hesketh-Harvey. Each partner was then invited to re-imagine the story engaging through their expert art form and themes pertinent to them. This has given us a rich and original programme of startlingly different interpretations. A Date with Carmen is the showcase of five new multilingual interpretations of the Carmen story, encompassing radio, dance, theatre and performance art. The result of an ongoing project bringing together companies from France, Georgia, Romania and the UKCompany Moving Theatre. Company Green Wave. Company Radio Romania International. Company Theatre Ephemeride. Company Tbilisi Vaso Abashidze Music. Company Drama State Theatre.
