Staged and acted Concert-Play performed by “Carmenco”





“Creating Carmen” is a Concert-play created by Clare Norburn.

A fun-filled evening of fantasy, comedy, drama and tremendous music arranged from Bizet's Carmen with Spanish and Spanish-inspired music by Boccherini, de Falla, Garcia -Lorca, Granados, Ravel Albeniz and Tárrega. Performed by three musicians (mezzo-soprano, flute and 2 guitars, and 2 guitars) with 2 actors. CarmenCo Trio (Emily Andrews, David Massey and Francisco Correa) with Niall Ashdown as Mérimée Alice Imelda as Carmen.

Prosper Mérimée is struggling with his latest novella, when his leading character - Carmen - turns up in his study, larger than life, with a band of musicians in tow and chaos in her wake. Which one of them controls the narrative? And what happens when Carmen discovers the nasty ending Mérimée has planned for her?

They present a wide range of concerts for small and large ensembles, weddings, corporate events concerts for children. It was formed in 2012 to provide a diverse and exciting range of performances in Scotland. Their scope extends from small groups of instrumentalists to full opera productions and the performance of new works.


Reinecke: Trio in B flat for clarinet, horn and piano (1st movement)

Brahms: Trio for violin, horn and piano Op 40

Stravinsky: The Soldier's Tale – Violin, clarinet and piano with animated film. This item also includes Stravinsky's associated music “3 Pieces for Solo Clarinet”

The Soldier's Tale Trio is a short instrumental suite written by Stravinsky for violin, clarinet and piano using material taken from his larger septet version of the same title. In this updated version, the suite is presented with live-edited animated film commissioned from artist Derek Gray and Edinburgh-based film maker Roddy Simpson. It is presented by Flora Munro

Written in the aftermath of World War 1, It tells the timeless parable about a fiddle-playing soldier returning home who makes a bargain with the devil, trading his violin for untold wealth. All is well until he realises that it is not material worth which is important in life - instead it is values such as family, music and love.

Consort Singers

The GESUALDO SIX is a vocal consort comprised of some of the UK's finest young consort singers, directed by Owain Park. Formed in March 2014 for a performance of Gesualdo's Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday in the chapel of Trinity College, Cambridge, the group went on to give over sixty performances around the United Kingdom and abroad in its first three years. Over this time, The Gesualdo Six further developed a passion for ensemble singing that for many of them stemmed from formative years as choristers in churches and cathedrals around the country.

The group will present a wonderfully varied programme of choral music ranging from the atmospheric and spiritual to the light hearted and tuneful. They travel from the renaissance to the present day and from sacred to secular with mastery. This concert features works from their debut album, English Motets, with highlights by William Byrd and Thomas Tallis, alongside pieces by Arvo Pärt and Eric Whitacre. This promises to be an evening to remember.
