Just caught the above on the radio - not much detail, although I think his Carmen was mentioned.  

Carlos Acosta
Superstar Cuban-British director, choreographer and ballet dancer, Carlos Acosta, will make his debut at Buxton International Festival with his intensely personal evening of dance, On Before.  Acosta, a long-time principal dancer at the Royal Ballet,  has danced as a guest principal with all the major ballet companies across the world and now enjoys a mighty career as a director and choreographer.  On Before pays homage to Acosta’s late mother featuring choreography by world renowned artists, including Russell Maliphant, Kim Brandstrup, and Will Tuckett. Acosta will perform as both a soloist and alongside Laura Rodríguez, a founding member of his Cuban dance company, Acosta Danza.

Venue: Buxton Opera House

Dates: Saturday 20 July at 7.15pm and Sunday 21 July at 6pm.

It's a lovely theatre and a lovely summery festival. When I went the "bell" to recall everyone milling around outside before curtain up was a brass fanfare from the balcony - the idea borrowed from Bayreuth I think.
