Mezzo-soprano Kirstin Chávez returns to the UK following her debut concert at Cadogan Hall in 2016 to perform her conceptual production Carmen Fire and Fate at the Cervantes Theatre from the 12th to the 17th June.
Specially devised Kirstin Chávez in collaboration with Artistic Director Johnathon Pape, the show tells the story of Carmen through the language of flamenco, choreographed by the Buenos Aires-born flamenco dancer Sol Koeraus.
Through Carmen’s reflections on the passions that drove her, the men who desired her, the fierce determination that burned within her and the jealousy that destroyed her, Kirstin explores the enigma at the heart of Carmen and reveals why the fascination with her continues.
Talking about the show Kirstin Chávez said: “After singing Carmen in nearly 40 different productions in so many countries around the world, I feel passionately about her way of living and being. During this one hour performance, the audience will experience an intimate view of Carmen’s lust for life and freedom that ultimately led to her need to embrace death.”
This hour long show will be performed by Kirstin Chávez and will be accompanied by James Longford on piano.
Carmen Fire and Fate will be performed at the Cervantes Theatre from the 12th to the 17th June. To book tickets visit: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/event/ELFFEE.
