Carmen Strikes Back

Carmen strikes back! Celebrating the start of our 15th Anniversary Season, we welcome the return of Ihsan Rustem’s smash hit CARMEN SEP 27-29, 2018 at the Newmark Theatre. Ihsan’s combines the iconic tale of betrayal, mayhem, and passion with his version of “The Stepford Wives” and 1950s Harper Bazaar silhouettes set in a hair salon and barber shop. His bold full-length work features original costumes from Portland fashion designer Michelle Lesniak and an inventive set from award-winning designer Luis Crespo.  The Oregonian chose CARMEN as one of their “6 arts picks for Portland-area arts events for Sept. 21-27.”
