2 Performances: Saturday 25th, 7.30pm & Sunday 26th, 1.30pm
Melbourne City Ballet’s Artistic Director Michael Pappalardo re-imagines Carmen to Bizet’s famous score to bring to life an evocative opera ballet paying homage to the well known Spanish inspired tragedy.
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 the pair 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 first overture.
