Black Tie International:



Carmen High to Open the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

at the Spotlites Venue


The 69th annual Edinburgh Fringe Festival will begin next week in Scotland. From its humble beginnings in 1947, the Edinburgh Fringe has grown into the largest arts festival in the world. The festival features theater, opera, comedy and dance performances around the city for the month of August. Opening up the Spotlites International Theatre in their new location at the corner of Hanover Street in the beautiful building of the Royal Society of Edinburgh is a new musical called, Carmen High. Carmen High is conceived and directed by Stephanie Vlahos, based on the Bizet opera, Carmen. Carmen High is a theatrical mash up of opera, hip hop, original songs, and classical music that reinvents the opera of Carmen as the real American high school experience told through the authentic voices of gifted teenage performers.


Carmen High is a powerful story about a popular mean girl who jokingly dates a high school outcast. Itís a story about fitting in and not fitting in, being popular and being bullied, suicide, peer pressure, pop culture, friendship, isolation, and rape. In Carmen High we experience a universe of stories about the American High School experience in a mash-up of hip hop, original pop songs, and music from Bizetís opera by teenagers navigating the emotional minefield of high school. Itís Glee with an authentic edge.


Carmen High is conceived in concept, lyric, and dialogue by Stephanie Vlahos and features music from the opera by Bizet with original songs written by The Faceless Muse, Kendra Celise, Lily Campbell, David Robinson and Scott Kelley. Carmen High is directed by Stephanie Vlahos with Scott Kelley (Choreographer), Jared Sayeg (Lighting Design) and And Galbach (musical direction). The cast includes: Georgia Mendes, Grant Bower, Dominique Adapon, Darci Anderson, Mia Michaud, Amy Prochaska, Zane Sipotz, Charlie Smith, Chris James, Joe Riahi, Connor Bezark, Jack Zager, Naja Burton, Daniela Rodrigo, Paloma Mettler, Jackson Hatwan, Shelbie Wayne, Sara Watson, Leah Lane, T J Smith, Isaiah Mikael, Aidan Morvec, Sebastian de Klerk, and Maria Campo.
