Ballet Hispanico Returning to Guild Hall with CARMEN.MAQUIA, 7/25
Ballet Hispanico, recognized as the nation's leading Latino dance organization since 1970, returns to Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton, NY, on Saturday, July 25, 2015 at 8pm by popular demand after a sold-out performance last year. Tickets are $20/$18 Members - $60/$58 Members and FREE to Students and are available at www.guildhall.org or by phone at 631-324-4050.
Ballet Hispanico will perform CARMEN.maquia. Hailed as a "masterpiece" by the Chicago Sun-Times, this work-like Bizet's iconic opera about a passionate gypsy-is riveting from start to finish. The physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco. With a visual concept inspired by Picasso's black-and-white palette, and movement that is full of elaborate partnering, CARMEN.maquia is a bold and electrifying reimagining of Bizet's fiery and tragic tale.
