Event Description

Part of Stroud Green Festival 2019

Reading of a brand new "play meets concert"

Meet the colourful writer Prosper Mérimée, whose novella Carmen was the basis for Bizet’s opera. Renowned for his myriad love affairs, in creating the character of Carmen, he finds this time he has bitten off rather more than he can chew....

Mérimée's experiences will be intertwined with music from Bizet's Carmen and Spanish or Spanish-inspired music by Boccherini, da Falla, Granados, Ravel, Delibes and Albeniz in arrangements by exciting young trio Carmen Co.

"What is most impressive about Norburn's conception is the way various strata and elements combine and cohere so effortlessly. Past and present, truth and fantasy, real and imagined, come together in a tightly knit and intimate drama" Opera Today
