About This Show

The story of the gypsy girl Carmen whose love and passion switch from one man to another with tragic consequences. Probably the world’s most famous opera and tunes. A Spanish story of love, treachery, passion and betrayal.

Baseless Fabric return to Grimeborn following 2019’s sell-out Die Fledermaus and their recent Cosi Fan Tutte, which was an Off West End Award Finalist for Best Opera Production. With a re-imagined score for violin, accordion and bassoon by acclaimed young composer Leo Geyer of Bizet’s famous tunes and a colloquial contemporary English libretto by director and librettist Joanna Turner, this daring new production places Bizet’s characters directly on today’s high street.
