The Car Man

 In 2000 choreographer Matthew Bourne introduced a new show using music from Carmen by Georges Bizet and ballet by Shchedrin. He used the opera’s title for the pun in the ballet’s title. Bourne’s Car Man is set in a car shop in the fictional 1960s American town of Harmony where a large Italian community lives. The story is based on The Postman Always Rings Twice starting with the arrival of a stranger looking for work. Luca becomes the object of interest not only for the beautiful wife of the service station owner, but also one of the mechanics, Angelo. The tense atmosphere has a surprise ending.
