About the Project:
VOICES OF CARMEN is an urban musical adaptation of the opera Carmen. and a new work developed through youth centered conversation and collaboration. This original production written and directed by Broadway veteran CJay Philip, will debut in Baltimore Maryland July 31st 2019 before being presenting at the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage Aug 3rd.
This show set in a High School, is filled with fresh yet familiar renditions of George Bizet’s compositions, as well as original music and rhythms that capture the voice and soul of todays youth. A theme within the production is crossroads and the critical moments of reaction that lead you down one road or another. Post performance dialogue examines varying levels of conflict and resolution.
