Carmen DisruptionPart of a series of plays at the Almeida that look at materialism, money and what we value, Carmen Disruption reimagines Bizet's opera by asking questions about how we love in a fractured urban world. Adapted by acclaimed playwright Simon Stephens - whose Birdland was a sell-out success at the Royal Court last year and his critically acclaimed take on The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time is soon to open in Broadway - this UK premiere of the murderous tale takes audiences to urban cityscapes.

 

About Almeida Theatre

Along with the Donmar Warehouse, the Almeida is the most critically praised theatre in Britain. After Jonathan Kent took over in 1990, it had 14 West End transfers in 12 years, and early booking for tickets became essential - by the time the reviews came out, the run was usually sold out.
