Sultry version of Carmen with a movie sheen
MATTHEW Bourne’s The Car Man is loosely based on Bizet’s opera Carmen but the 19th century Spanish cigarette factory becomes a greasy garage-diner in 1960s America where a small-town’s peace is shattered by the arrival of a handsome stranger but soon heat and desire fuel dangerous passions.
