Carmen Jones, the story

Inspired by a couple of vintage album covers - the opera ‘Carmen’ set in Spain, and the 1940’s adaptation “Carmen Jones’ - an Afro-American take on the story -  the name represents the bringing together of cultures, celebrating off-beat diversity and intriguing juxtapositions...
