Meet the colourful writer Prosper Mérimée, whose novella Carmen was the basis for Bizet’s opera. Renowned for his myriad love affairs, in creating the character of Carmen, he finds this time he has bitten off rather more than he can chew...
Mérimée's experiences will be intertwined with music from Bizet's Carmenand Spanish or Spanish-inspired music by Boccherini, da Falla, Granados, Ravel, Delibes and Albeniz in arrangements by exciting young trio Carmen Co.
