This one-act ballet, choreographed by company founder Mark Roxey,
is a contemporary ballet, stylized in abstract decor.
“Carmen” is a sensually vivid and passionate story of lust and treachery based on the fabled temptress of Seville. The story follows the downward spiral of “Carmen” after Prosper Merimee’s novel and Georges Bizet’s opera.
Don Jose, who is distracted by the temptation of love from his mistress, Carmen,
is reminded of his commitment to his wife, Michaela.
Carmen has many admirers including Escamillo, a Toreador, Zuniga the Captain, and Morales who is a soldier and smuggler.
This ballet follows the romance twists created by each character that is vibrant with treachery, lust and betrayal.
Who will fall to the tragic consequences and who will survive?
This production of sizziling dance will also include guest appearance
by a world class flamenco dancer, Lisa Botalico,
performing the role of the Fortune Teller.
