uCarmen & A Midsummer Night’s Dream Nov 10-22
|November 10, 2015||to||November 22, 2015|
Known around the globe for their commitment to creating work that reflects and unites a diverse South African nation, the world-renowned Isango Ensemble returns to Boston with two new reimagined classics: uCarmen & A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Based on the famous opera, uCarmen transports us to a modern South African township to follow the story of Carmen, a strong, independent woman who will not be tamed. Meanwhile, A Midsummer Night's Dream is completely faithful to the spirit of the original work and must be counted as one of the most successful operatic adaptations ever of a Shakespeare play — a work with spellbinding atmosphere that inhibits a truly unique, dreamlike world.
Presented by ArtsEmerson at the Emerson/Cutler Majestic Theatre
