Bizet's Carmen gets a cultural transplant as director Mark Dornford-May transports the events of the tragic opera to South Africa in this musical concerning a seductive cigarette-factory worker and her attempts to romance a policeman already set to marry another woman. Originally mounted on-stage by the innovative Dornford-May, this version of Carmen reworks Bizet's familiar tunes by adopting them into Xhosa to tell the tale of Carmen's doomed affair with otherwise involved policeman Jongikhaya (Andile Tshoni). ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
