An addictive fire of passion, love triangle and tragedy.

Choreography:    Chiara Ajkun

Music:    George Bizet (staged to Maria Callas' Paris Opera recording) 

Synopsis:    Unmatched for passion, jealousy, and a love triangle turned into crime of passion, Carmen is set to Bizet’s stirring music, blazed by the dramatic voice of “La Divina” Maria Callas, and groundbreaking in its realism.

“[Ajkun’s] Carmen is superb…an outstanding success…[her choreography is] a masterly application in technique…wonderfully more elaborate buildings up and much finer characterization of the various personalities”
London Times - Maria Ghirlando
