“Creating Carmen” is a Concert-play created by Clare Norburn.

A fun-filled evening of fantasy, comedy, drama and tremendous music arranged from Bizet’s Carmen with Spanish and Spanish-inspired music by Boccherini, de Falla, Garcia -Lorca, Granados, Ravel Albeniz and Tárrega. Performed by three musicians (mezzo-soprano, flute and 2 guitars, and 2 guitars) with 2 actors. CarmenCo Trio (Emily Andrews, David Massey and Francisco Correa) with Niall Ashdown as Mérimée  Alice Imelda as Carmen.

Prosper Mérimée is struggling with his latest novella, when his leading character - Carmen - turns up in his study, larger than life, with a band of musicians in tow and chaos in her wake. Which one of them controls the narrative? And what happens when Carmen discovers the nasty ending Mérimée has planned for her?
