A Cutting Edge Retelling Of Bizet’s Classic
|ROCK CARMEN, which premiered with Miami City Ballet, is a futuristic vision of the timeless themes of love, sex, power, politics, money, betrayal and revenge .
The story takes place in the year 2099 as the Senate convenes in a television studio to appoint a new Proconsul of Justice. Carmen, a beautiful, narcissistic Pop Star, seduces and destroys the lives of 2 dashing men of power in her quest for fame and glory under the manipulative glare of the Media.
The score utilizes the classic Bizet themes arranged and voiced for a dynamic and versatile Rock Band.
The libretto is a fusion of the original French lyrics with Hip Hop inspired Def Poetry.
