Passion, drama, and riveting performances unfold in Ballet Ireland’s Carmen.

Thrilling audiences when first performed, this ballet created for the company follows the tragic story of a young, naïve soldier Jose who is bewitched by the beautiful and enigmatic Carmen. Obsessed and reckless, Jose turns his back on his previous life to be with her. But Carmen refuses to be possessed by anybody, even someone so relentless in their pursuit.

Award-winning choreographer Morgann Runacre-Temple (Nutcracker Sweeties, Romeo & Juliet) brings a modern interpretation to the staging and choreography of this iconic work while at the same retaining all its passion and drama.

With musical arrangements for flamenco guitar which are created and performed live by flamenco guitarist John Walsh, Carmen never ceases to thrill audiences.

Duration 90 mins incl interval.
Age: 12+
