An exciting evening of theatrical magic, Carmen is a vivid and passionate story of lust, treachery, and fate based on the fabled temptress of Seville. A ballet of dramatic intensity and blazing emotion set to the beautiful and evocative music of Georges Bizet. Carmen is a tragedy about obsessive love. It is the story of Don Jose, a young military officer who is fatefully drawn to the earthly charms and magnetic beauty of a Gypsy girl, Carmen. This legendary tale has captured the imagination of audiences around the world.
