The Festival Theatre is proud to present the European debut of America’s premier Latino dance company Ballet Hispánico with CARMEN.maquia, a Picasso-inspired, contemporary take on Bizet’s beloved classic.
The physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco. A stunning set design by Luis Crespo and minimalist black-and-white costumes by fashion designer David Delfin evoke the paintings of Pablo Picasso. Highly original and full of elaborate partnering, Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia is a bold and electrifying reimagining of this tragic tale.
