About the Musical
Carmen brings a magical spectacle in the Broadway style to Prague, featuring no lack of daring circus numbers. The cast of stars and beautiful music by Frank Wildhorn promise an amazing theatrical experience such as Prague has never seen before. For the first time in history, a Broadway musical celebrates its world premiere in Prague.
This new version of Carmen, created by a trio of experienced American authors, is not merely a copy of the original book or opera. It isn't a "modern version," but a story "inspired" by the original.
Under the auspices of the mayor of Prague, Pavel Bem, for the first time, we pooled together the strong creative abilities of the managers of both Karlin Musical Theatre and Ta Fantastika in preparation for the world premiere of Carmen.
World Premiere: October 2 and 3, 2008
