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. Obsessed and reckless, Jose turns 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).
