Passion, drama, and riveting performances unfold in Ballet Ireland’s Carmen.
Thrilling audiences when first performed, this ballet created for the company follows the story of a young, naïve soldier Jose, who is bewitched by the beautiful and fiery gypsy, Carmen, turning his back on respectable life to be with her. But Carmen, like love, is a bird that cannot be tamed and Jose’s desire to possess her eventually destroys them both.
This age-old story, as relevant today as ever, is re-told in a modern setting created by award-winning choreographer Morgann Runacre-Temple (Nutcracker Sweeties, Romeo & Juliet).
