Description
Equal parts soap opera, tragicomedy, and rhapsody, Carmen la coja is Ana Castillo's imaginative variation on the themes of Bizet's Carmen, set in the Latin community of Chicago and the seductive world of flamenco. Carmen "La Coja" Santos is a renowned local dancer who has long maintained an affair with the great Agustín, the married director of her troupe. An angry rivalry is sparked when she begins a passionate new liaison with Agustín's grandson, the gifted Manolo; her childhood polio returns; and her already aggravating relationship with her mother takes a difficult turn. But in the end, Carmen, unlike her namesake, finds her way back to happiness.
Description
Carmen Santos inicia un romance con Manolo por el cual se definirá su vida. Desafiando la severidad de su madre y a pesar de la poliomielitis en una de sus piernas, Carmen se levanta con fuerza como una bailarina de flamenco, siendo este el detonante para una rivalidad sin limites entre los dos.

Issued also on cassette.
