Carmen copy

American break through for Dutch theatre producer Robin de Levita
Musical Carmen to prestigious theatre La Jolla Playhouse directed by Cirque du Soleil director Franco Dragone

The La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego will feature the new musical Carmen with music of John Ewbank. Producer Robin de Levita is the first European producer who will bring a complete new musical to one of the most prestigious subsidised American theatres. The La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego invests several millions in the project. The theatre is known for being the best place to develop successful Broadway shows. The big winner of the Tony Awards 2006, Jersey Boys, had his world premiere in this theatre. De Levita asked componer and producer John Ewbank to join in on Carmen. Ewbank wrote almost all the hits of Marco Borsato and composed 14 number one hits in the Dutch hitcharts. The musical Carmen will open in the La Jolla House June 2007
