This electrifying one-act ballet is choreographed by company founder Mark Roxey. 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” based Prosper Merimee’s novel. The ballet has captured the attention of audiences throughout the world since French Dance Master Roland Petit first presented sizzling tale of seduction and betrayal at Prince’s Theatre in London in 1949.
Based on the life of Mexican Artist Frida Kahlo, this ballet incorporates Mexican Folk music and dance to depict her life of struggle and strength after being resigned to a wheel chair from a bus accident which left her paralyzed. This moving tribute is choreographed by Giovanni Ravello who skillfully communicates the intense relationship between Frida Kahlo and her husband Diego Rivera, the chronic physical pain she experiences after the accident enduring more than 30 surgeries and, finally, having part of her leg amputated months before she died at the age of 47 in 1954. Even though her art is called surrealist she painted her reality, her pain and the immense love for her husband who cheated on her countless times even with her own sister.
The house opens 30 minutes prior to the performance.
