Roxey Ballet's Carmen
Celebrate the season of love with Roxey Ballet's Carmen Ballet.
This original interpretation of original music and choreography is the perfect the season of love.
The electrifying one-act ballet is choreographed by company founder Mark Roxey. It is a highly contemporary ballet, stylized in abstract decor.
“Carmen” is a sensually vivid and passionate story of lust and treachery based on the fabled temptress of Seville. The story follows the downward spiral of “Carmen” after Prosper Merimee’s novel and Georges Bizet’s opera. The ballet has captured and scandalized audiences throughout the world since French Dance Master Roland Petit first presented the 45-minute tale of seduction and betrayal at Prince’s Theatre in London in 1949. The central love duet for Carmen and Don Jose is said to be among the most sensual couplings ever put on the ballet stage.
