Carmen

Based on the novel by Prosper Mérimée

Audiences will be seduced by the physicality and energy of Amedeo Amodio's dramatic Carmen. Accompanied by Georges Bizet's famous score, obsession, intensity and drama are found in this modern-day reimagining of one of the world's most famous operas. The honorable soldier Don Jose. The proud toreador Escamillo. And Carmen, the seductive and passionate woman they both love. The stage is set for a tangled tale of passion and betrayal told through classical ballet with a contemporary edge.
