Watch: About Voices of Carmen!

VOICES OF CARMEN is a musical adaptation of the opera Carmen. and a new work developed through youth centered conversation and collaboration. This original production written and directed by CJay Philip, debuted in Baltimore, Maryland July 31st, 2019, and was featured at the DC Black Theater Festival, The Atlanta Black Theater Festival, and the Kennedy Center Page to Stage Festival.
The musical, set in a High School, is filled with fresh yet familiar renditions of Georges Bizet’s  compositions as well as original music and rhythms that capture the voice and soul of today’s 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 the range of conflicts in the opera and how we relate and resolve conflict in our own lives.
