WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

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.

Matthew Bourne's internationally acclaimed dance thriller was first seen in 2000, winning the Evening Standard Award for 'Musical Event of the Year'. Running time: 2hrs 20mins. Please note: Contains themes of an adult nature. Recorded music.
