. One of the UK's leading Ballet Companies. With its fiery drama and iconic music, Carmen
never ceases to thrill. In this reimagined version, choreographer Johan Inger takes audiences deep into the passions and dark undercurrents of the original story - imbuing the enduring tale with new resonance. Sensual and spirited, Carmen turns every head - including Don Jose's. But when she refuses to fall under his control, he plunges into an abyss of jealousy and rage, with tragic consequences. Inger's choreography combines contemporary and classical movement to powerful effect. Nine large movable mirrors frame the action – transporting us from a town square through to the troubled mind of Don Jose. Menace and foreboding loom over the stage, thanks to additional music by Marc Alvarez which complements Bizet and Shchedrin's classic score, performed live by ENB Philharmonic.
