The following information is from the show’s website at: www.carmen-musical.com. This is a translation from the original Czech.
Carmen brings to Prague a spectacular Broadway style show featuring daring circus stunts. An all-star cast and the hypnotic music of Frank Wildhorn virtually guarantee a theatrical experience unlike any seen before in Prague. The production had a very successful premiere in March of 2008 and is still running to sold out audiences. For the first time in history, Prague played host to a world premiere written by famous Broadway authors.
This new version of the story - written for the Karlin Musical Theatre by the experienced trio of American authors Frank Wildhorn, Jack Murphy and Norman Allen - is not identical to the original novel or opera. It is not a modern version of Carmen, but rather a story inspired by the original.
For the first time ever, Carmen brings together the production talents of two top theatres - the Karlin Musical Theatre and Ta Fantastika. Carmen Musical will be held under the auspices of Mayor of Prague MUDr. Pavel Bém!
