A STAR-studded theatre and dance group from Sevilla is returning from a worldwide tour to showcase the hit show Mi Carmen Flamenca to its native Andalucia.

The adaptation of the famous opera Carmen gives a flamenco-focused taste of Andalucia while remaining true to the original script.

With a dozen of Andalucia’s best flamenco dancers and five musicians, the Flamenca Antonio Andrade Company is the only purely Andalucian private theatre company.

Director Antonio Andrade said: “It is a production of Carmen but with a twist.

“We wanted to give Carmen a new character, to give the opera more of a Spanish feel, to make it closer to it’s Andalucian storyline.”

The production has already toured much of Europe and will appear at Malaga’s Teatro Cervantes on November 25 before jetting off to Asia and South America.

Tickets start at €9 and are available at www.unientradas.es
