This vibrant world premiere ballet production by Artistic Director Willy Shives features wild gypsy girls, soldiers, and bullfighters all dancing to the music made famous by Georges Bizet in an opera of the same name.

When the death card reveals to Carmen, the fabled temptress of Seville, that she will die at the hands of one of her lovers, she scoffs and goes about her wiles. Her attraction to an intense young soldier named Jose is short-lived when she meets a new lover, the exceptionally handsome bullfighter, Escamillo. A sizzling tale of seduction, jealousy, betrayal and rage… all in the name of love.
