Commentaire:

Using all the music from the opera “Carmen”, Oscar Hammerstein II provided completely new lyrics and a new setting. All the characters are Negro workers in a southern parachute factory during World War II. It is the story of Joe, an army corporal, and his love for the temptress, Carmen Jones, which ends with him stabbing her to death after she leaves him for the boxer, Husky Miller. The show was first produced on Broadway in December 1943 where it ran for 502 performances. This was its British premiere and it received something of a mixed reaction from the critics - mainly feeling the production and staging were a bit unadventurous, although the music and lyrics were much appreciated. However, it ran for one year and nine months and won several awards. During the course of its run the part of Joe was taken over by Gary Wilmot.  (plus)

Commentaire:

During the pre-London tour the lead female role was played by Ulrika Jonsson, who withdrew and her part was taken by Leslie Ash. It was 45 years since the show had last been in London, but generally the critics felt it had not been worth reviving - especially in what was described as a lacklustre production with some very peculiar scenery designs by the abstract painter, Frank Stella. It
ran for ten weeks.  (plus)
