Grammy Winner and Tony Nominee Team Up to Re-Imagine Afro-Cuban Carmen

News   Grammy Winner and Tony Nominee Team Up to Re-Imagine Afro-Cuban Carmen
 
Tectonic Theater Project will present dance and music excerpts from Carmen: An Afro-Cuban Musical, a new development piece, for invited guests March 6 in NYC.

The music adaptation is by 2015 Grammy winner Arturo O'Farrill with direction by Tony and Emmy-nominated director and playwright Moisés Kaufman (The Heiress, 33 Variations).

The classic Bizet opera has been re-imagined to take place in Cuba in 1958, just before the breakout of the revolution. In this contemporary adaptation, the iconic arias and duets are transformed using a combination of original melodies and Afro-Cuban jazz materials.

Carmen: An Afro-Cuban Musical features choreography by Sergio Trujillo (Memphis), with a production slated for 2016. Tectonic Theater Project has been developing this new work since 2011.
