Steamy and sexy (and that was just the first 5 minutes in the nude shower scene) this was the Ravel's Carmen reimagined in a small American town in the 50s. The action was set around a garage (Car Man - geddit?), a haughty woman, a stranger strolling into town, betrayal and murder. I loved the music, set and costumes but I didn't always love Matthew Bourne's choreography - call me parochial but give me Graeme Murphy any day.
