Passion and power collide as Melbourne City Ballet present Carmen

Don José is called upon to return home to marry childhood sweetheart Micaela.  However, a chance encounter with the enchanting gypsy girl Carmen, leads them both into a tumultuous relationship of passion and destruction. A fiery, free spirited woman, Carmen’s fate is written in the cards but she refuses to be tamed by any man.

The splendor of Carmen is in the passionate pas de deux’s and stirring group numbers, so whether it’s the seductive factory workers that lure you in or the strutting bullfighters that set your hearts aflutter, Melbourne City Ballet’s Carmen is a vibrant and bold production that from the very first overture will have audiences en garde!

The young dancers were sensational and gave terrific performances…dramatic and intense, and the pas de deux were excellent. A most interesting version excellently danced.
