New Adventures are delighted to announce the revival of one of Matthew Bourne’s most requested productions - the internationally acclaimed dance thriller “THE CAR MAN” - for a limited 16 week UK tour. The tour opens at The Churchill Theatre, Bromley, on 14 April 2015, with a four week summer season at Sadler’s Wells from 14 July to 9 August 2015. The current schedule is below, with further dates to be announced shortly.
Loosely based on Bizet’s popular opera; it has one of the most thrilling and instantly recognisable scores in New Adventures’ repertory, featuring Schedrin’s powerful Carmen Suite and new arrangements of Bizet's legendary score, by New Adventures Associate Artist, Terry Davies.
First seen in 2000, winning the Evening Standard Award for ‘Musical Event of the Year’ and the Los Angeles Drama Critics Award for ‘Best Choreography’; “THE CAR MAN” was last revised in 2007. This revival will be the first time the production has been staged in eight years and will feature a new generation of New Adventures brilliant dancer/actors in the challenging roles of ‘Luca’, ‘Lana’, ‘Angelo’ and ‘Rita’. Full casting will be announced shortly.
