About the Show/Event
Information for Maria Pages Company - Yo, Carmen at Playhouse Theatre, Edinburgh (Dance or ballet). A vibrant ode to womanhood, and a radical reimagining of Bizet's voluptuous opera heroine - from the brilliant flamenco dancer and choreographer Maria Pages. Visionary and flamboyant, and blending dance, music, poetry and theatre, Yo Carmen digs deep into the primal emotions of flamenco - and is unforgettably beautiful. The show brings together eight dancers in Pag?s's fluid flamenco choreography. Seven musicians - featuring violin and cello alongside flamenco guitarists and singers - provide a live soundtrack of Bizet's familiar opera tunes, the popular songs that inspired them, and gripping original flamenco. Performed in Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, French and English with English supertitles. Edinburgh International Festival
