‘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

Join us for the world premiere of brand new concert-play by Clare Norburn. 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... In this event, Mérimée's experiences are intertwined with music from Bizet's Carmen and Spanish/Spanish-inspired music by Boccherini, da Falla, Granados, Ravel, Délibes and Albéniz, in arrangements by exciting young trio, Carmen Co.

Emily Andrews mezzo soprano & flute
Francisco Correa guitar
David Massey guitar
