The Car Man tickets

A spectacular new staging of Bourne’s dance-thriller

Buckle up at the Royal Albert Hall as Matthew Bourne’s multi-award-winning The Car Man arrives in a thrilling new staging to celebrate the venue’s 150th anniversary.

Based on Bizet’s Carmen, The Car Man is a dance-thriller spectacular which transports the classic opera’s story to a grease-slicked garage and diner in 1960s America. One small town’s dreams are torn apart when a handsome stranger arrives, and the townspeople soon descend into a frenzied spiral of greed, desire, backstabbing and revenge.

Developed by dance titan Matthew Bourne and his company New Adventures, The Car Man at the Royal Albert Hall features an expanded company of 65 dancers and musicians and a live orchestra. It is completely reimagined to fill the gladiatorial venue, with dancers performing throughout the auditorium.

Not my first Mathew Bourne production and won't be my last. This show is simply fantastic, full of energy and passion. The performance was faultless and the live orchestra matched the flawless performance on stage. If you've never seen a Mathew Bourne show before then you are missing out on an amazing evening. His productions leave you feeling lifted and on a high.

Matthew Bourne has revamped his popular production to suit the Royal Albert Hall. The stage has an extended runway to bring the dancers out into audience. His brilliant choreography and accomplished dancers shine even brighter in this incredible venue. Stunning!
