Carmen is a new, LGBTQ+ adaptation of Merimee's novella. Set in 1960s Seville, it follows the story of its eponymous character as he navigates a relationship with police sergeant Don Jose. As the story progresses and we are introduced to a whole host of vibrant characters, Don Jose is forced to choose between love, or the life that is expected of him. Comedy, drama, music, and dance all come together in this raucous celebration of love and queer identity.
