Balletto Di Milano

Ballet in two acts with music by Georges Bizet

Loosely inspired by the tale by Prosper Merimee

Choreography by Agnese Omodei Salè – Federico Veratti

Set design by Marco Pesta

Enhanced in set and costumes, Carmen by Balletto di Milano is confirmed as one of the most anticipated productions of the season. Carmen, beautiful and unconventional, passionate and desired, who challenges anyone who wants to subdue her, and Destiny, so well described by the omnipresent leitmotiv of music, are the protagonists of this exclusive version of Balletto di Milano. A bewitching face in which Carmen will understand that the only way to live as she wishes is to bend to him, to the Fate, and accept the impending death that has been announced by the cards.

It is the confrontation / clash between the gypsy symbol of femininity and the belonging figure who controls the story from the first scene. It is in fact Destiny that puts Don José first and recorded Escamillo on the road of Carmen, revealing himself through the symbols of the cards (love, betrayal, death), to arm Don Josè’s hand and, in the final, to bring Carmen with him.

Don Josè, the bullfighter Escamillo and Micaela are the other main interpreters of this ballet full of engaging choreography: from the famous “Habanera”, to the many and lively ensemble dances of Gitani, Soldati and Sigaraie on the music by Georges Bizet. Tradition and modernity also coexist in the climate of energy from the Marco Pesta’s original stage design. The production doesn’t betray the expectations for tradition, remaining faithful to the Prosper Mérimée’s tale and to the famous opera by Georges Bizet.

Important announcement:
According to the theatre’s regulations, children under the age of 16, will not be allowed to enter the theatre without adult supervision.
