    Carmen La Cubana Tickets

    Christopher Renshaw directs a sizzling production of new musical Carmen La Cubana, based on Oscar Hammerstein II’s smash-hit Broadway show. Set against the dawning turmoil of the Cuban Revolution, the musical fuses together opera and sensational dance, bringing to life the heat of Cuba with salsa, mambo, rumba and cha-cha-cha.

    A sensational new musical cha-cha-cha’s its way into Sadler’s Wells for a limited season, bringing the vibrant, authenticity of Cuban style. Creating a heady combination of opera, salsa, mambo, rumba and other musical favourites such as Habanera, Carmen La Cubana is the sizzling production that transports audiences to the crazy Caribbean islands.

    Originally premiering in Paris in 2016, Carmen La Cubana comes to London for the first time, featuring Bizet’s classic score accompanied by energetic, pulsating choreography. Inspired by Oscar Hammerstein II’s smash-hit Broadway show Carmen Jones, the musical takes place against the backdrop of the dawn of the 1958 Revolution in Cuba.

    A gripping love story, the action develops from the gates of a rural cigar factory to the bustling bars and clubs of central Santiago and Havana. Featuring a 12-strong band and stunning cast of over 26 talented performers, the audience sees how Carmen’s own fight for independence is found in the spirit of the Cuban Revolution.

    Directed by prolific West End director Christopher Renshaw (The King and I, Zorro, We Will Rock You), Carmen La Cubana features orchestrations by Tony Award-winner Alex Lacamoire (Hamilton), choreography by Roclan Gonzalez Chavez and design by Tom Piper.

    Earning rave reviews from audiences and critics alike, this electrifying production fuses together the sizzling Cuban heat with a satisfying contemporary twist. Carmen La Cubana plays at Sadler’s Wells from 1 August to 19 August 2018.
