Do you know Carmen? No doubt, since it is one of the most popular and most performed operas in the world. So let's rephrase our question: would you like to discover Bizet's opera as you've never seen it before? In natural or urban settings. Carmen in the open air, Carmen in the street, Carmen in the square, Carmen in the forest, Carmen by the waterside, Carmen on the seashore, Carmen in an underground car park...
Here we come, here we are,
When she last came to Nancy, Jeanne Desoubeaux and her company Maurice et les autres took us on a journey in the footsteps of Orpheus with Où je vais la nuit, a musical feast as lyrical as it was pop. This time she's taking us on a completely different journey, both literally and figuratively: ten artists and a reduced orchestra comprising piano, cello, clarinet, percussion and ukuleles, for a travelling performance in which each stop corresponds to a new act. Divided into groups, the audience is offered a range of subjective and original points of view on Carmen's tragic destiny. A project as crazy as it is adventurous. Calling all adventurers!
