Hogfish’s flagship artists-in-residence production for summer 2023, featuring artists from the Metropolitan Opera, Broadway, and beyond!

A new adaptation through the Hogfish lens of the classic opera Carmen exploring boundaries of geopolitics, gender, and genre conceived and directed by Edwin & Matt Cahill.

Devised from the original Opéra Comique version and short story by Prosper Merimée, Hogfish’s CarmXn is a modern day musical with new dialogue spoken in English and other languages of the border including Spanish, French, and Dari.  Bizet’s magical score comes to life across musical genres with re-imagined mariachi band orchestration by Felix Jarrar featuring members of the Palaver Strings and an electronic Flamenco dance party created by Lucy Dhegrae. Learn more about the Cast and Creative Team here.

Arrive early to grab a margarita and walk through the borderlands in an art exhibition celebrating artists who inspire by creating out of bounds. Dance with the cast of CarmXn at the Club Lillas Pastia and be riveted by this enduring story of love, loss, and the power of living life across borders.
