A ballet in two acts based on the novella Carmen by Prosper Mérimée
ISAAC ALBÉNIZ GEORGES BIZET
GABRIELE BONOLIS MANUEL DE FALLA
Musical Elaboration and Orchestration by GABRIELE BONOLIS
Choreographer Jiří Bubeníček’s Carmen celebrates the incredible inspiration of Bizet’s timeless music in a completely new two-act ballet that also includes music by Albéniz, Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Falla, orchestrated and adapted by Gabriele Bonolis. The production emphasises aspects of the original drama, heightening the erotic atmosphere of the cigar factory and Carmen’s wild spirit, and including a spectacular on-stage horse. The sensational choreography closely depicts the storyline of Prosper Mérimée’s original novella in a production that was hailed by critics as a triumph.
