Summary
"Carmen Jones is a 1943 Broadway musical, later made into a 1954 musical film; the play also ran for a season in 1991 at London's Old Vic and most recently in London's Royal Festival Hall in the South Bank Centre in 2007. It is an updating of the Georges Bizet opera Carmen in an African-American setting. The Broadway musical was produced by Billy Rose, using an all-black cast. Oscar Hammerstein II wrote the dialogue and lyrics, but stuck rather closely to Bizet's original music, which was re-orchestrated for a Broadway orchestra by Robert Russell Bennett." -- prestomusic.com.
