Carmen presented by Melbourne City Ballet

Ayr, Burdekin Area

Indicative Rate * AU$20 to AU$32

Melbourne City Ballet’s portrayal of the classic “Carmen”, tells the story of Don Jose, a young spanish policeman working away from home. Don Jose receives a letter from his mother calling on him to return home to marry childhood friend Micaela. Don Jose’s world is changed when Carmen, a local popular gypsy girl, seduces Don Jose into freeing her from police custody after she has an altercation with her friend at a cigarette factory.

Melbourne City Ballet’s Artistic Director Michael Pappalardo reimagines “Carmen” to Bizet’s famous score to bring to life an evocative opera ballet paying homage to the well known spanish inspired tragedy. Pappalardo’s “Carmen” is designed to be a loud and bold affair, pulling the audience in from the first overture.

To celebrate this exciting performance, Burdekin Theatre will be offering an exclusive hour ballet workshop with Melbourne City Ballet’s professional artists. This session will not only provide Burdekin residents the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of ballet artistry but to meet some of the cast of “Carmen”. No ballet experience required! Just bring your fitness clothing and your sense of fun. This event has very limited available so make sure you don’t miss out.
