An iconic tale of Spanish heat and gypsy passion
Riverside Theatres will present Natalie Weir's Carmen Sweet, on 10 and 11 November.
Rodion Shchedrin's gripping score provides the heart behind Carmen Suite, an iconic tale of Spanish heat and gypsy passion that unravels when a naïve soldier, Don José, has his heart ignited by the fiery Carmen.
The work is a new take on the opera Carmen composed by Georges Bizet and first performed in 1875. Natalie Weir's Carmen is a free spirit, dangerous, volatile and vulnerable, brought to vivid life by three dancers playing her different states of mind and alter egos.
