Carmen's story is an almost perfect excuse to look inside yourself. The love triangle, in which the images of officer Jose, Toreador and Carmen are built, does not imply a division into right and wrong. Each hero here has his own truth and his own unwritten scenario of how to live, love and die.
Each hero here has his own truth and his own, unwritten, scenario of how to live, love and die. Remaining at the mercy of stereotypes that were not invented by them, they attract and repel each other, strive for idyllic harmony and fear it with animal insight, which is why they mercilessly destroy their own and others' fates.
The bright original choreography makes the performance unlike any of the previously known productions of the famous plot. Expressive ensemble scenes are effectively combined with the dramatic dances of the main characters.
There are no events.
