A breathtakingly spectacular interpretative dance drama, based on Georges Bizet's classic opera, Carmen, starring Natalia Osipova.
This Christmas, Bird&Carrot and the Pleasance are delighted to present one of the most popular operas ever written. Bizet’s Carmen tells the tragic story of the downfall of Don José, a soldier seduced by the fiery, daring and uncompromising gypsy.
Since premiering in 1875, Carmen has influenced countless artists, as the subject of multiple adaptations in opera, film, theatre and ballet. Now, Royal Ballet prima Natalia Osipova and choreographer Didy Veldman present a new adaptation of Bizet’s opera – a ballet combining elements of immersive theatre.
Starring superstar dancers Jason Kittelberger and Isaac Hernandez, emerging stars Eryck Brahmania and Hannah Ekholm, and with newly composed music by Dave Price. The story of Carmen is reimagined in this incredible collaboration of theatre, dance and music, but it remains a passionate tale of love, self doubt and ultimately murder.
With strong theatricality and a quirky sense of humour, Carmen shines new light on a timeless classic.
Two performances only. Book now for Christmas.
