The first Cuban musical celebrates its première in Switzerland

Revolutionary, proud and seductive!

The most frequently performed opera in the world by Georges Bizet as you've never seen it before!

CARMEN LA CUBANA trades a classical orchestra for a Latin big band of 14 musicians, lending a new, enchanting flair to the familiar melodies. Lively Caribbean rhythms, passionate lyrics and energetic dancing transport audiences to the vibrant hustle and bustle of Havana. Amidst the glow of summer and the atmosphere of the revolution, an ill-fated love story unfolds between the proud Carmen and soldier José. Transposing this legendary story to Cuba has introduced a new element of intensity to the musical, which caused a sensation

during its world première in 2016 at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.

Experience CARMEN LA CUBANA, the new musical straight from the streets of Cuba: The

breath-taking opera numbers blend wonderfully with the tumultuous sounds of the Caribbean, with each fateful moment of the story bubbling over with the spirit of Cuba.

This Carmen has what it takes to seduce audiences over and over again.
