Following on from the very successful performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in our 2017 Season, the Melbourne City Ballet is back by popular demand with their interpretation of this classic tale.
Melbourne City Ballet’s Artistic Director, Michael Pappalardo, reimagines Carmen to Bizet’s famous score to bring to life an evocative opera ballet paying homage to the well known spanish inspired tragedy.
"Love is a rebellious bird that nobody can tame..."
Carmen tells the story of a city policeman Don Jose whose mother calls him to return home to marry childhood sweetheart Micaela but a chance encounter with the enchanting gypsy girl, Carmen, leads them both into a relationship of both passion and destruction.
Pappalardo’s Carmen is designed to be a loud and bold affair, pulling the audience in from the ?rst overture.
