    Carmen Concert/Show with Francisco Correa

    10.45-11.30amThe Assembly Rooms, Faversham, Kent

    This is our first Carmen Co show! David Massey and I are joined by guitarist Francisco Correa .

    Carmen is a charater who is well known, and who fascinates both men and women. She's a selfish, ruthless and gorgeous femme fatale who all the men admire, and who switches lovers frequently, leaving destruction in her wake. So we have taken this character, and are setting our own story, with the hoards of admirers represented by the two guitarists, and also the audience. Our Carmen oscillates between the guitarists for her preference, and they in turn compete for her attentions. All of this is portrayed through Spanish music as there's no script. A duet is a conversation, virtuoso passages are showing off or competing. Who will she choose?

    Music performed on two guitars, voice and flute, and includes arias from the opera Carmen, as well as instrumental works by De Falla, Boccherini, Rodrigo and Bizet.
