Based on the original story of “Carmen”- Prosper Merimee.

Carmen is dead, murdered in a moment of passion. For those who knew her, all that is left are the memories.

This new and exciting work from Spare Parts Theatre reflects on the death of Carmen, retracing Prosper Merimee’s original story from the tragic end to the beginning. Through the sound of flamenco guitar and the reminiscenes of Don Jose, we capture again the wild free flight of Carmen.
