Ajkun Ballet Theatre performs “Carmen” – an addictive fire of passion, love triangle and tragedy.
Unmatched for passion, jealousy, and a love triangle turned into crime of passion, Carmen is set to Bizet’s stirring music, blazed by the dramatic voice of “La Divina” Maria Callas, and groundbreaking in its realism.
Chiara Ajkun’s choreography portrays Carmen as a leader of change for women’s free choices. Set apart by her taunting beauty, Carmen lays eyes on Don Josè. Explosive sparks follow, and the ultimate romance of love and passion keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.
