Both brilliantly acted and sung by the internationally acclaimed South African theater company, Dimpho Di Kopane (DDK), U-Carmen is a stunning adaptation of perhaps the world s best-loved opera, Carmen. Re-imagined in the modern world of South African pool halls, bars, courtyards and barracks U-Carmen tells the story of a cigarette factory-worker, Carmen, (Malefane) and her doomed love affair with a police sergeant.
