Love is like a rose, but beware of its thorns! Come join the Roxey Ballet in their up-close-and-personal Canal Studio Theater for a passionate, dramatic and sensual performance of the ballet Carmen.
The electrifying one-act ballet is choreographed by company founder Mark Roxey. It is a highly contemporary ballet, stylized in abstract decor. “Carmen” is a sensually vivid and passionate story of lust and treachery based on the fabled temptress of Seville. The story follows the downward spiral of “Carmen” after Prosper Merimee’s novel. The ballet has captured and scandalized audiences throughout the world since French Dance Master Roland Petit first presented the beautiful tale of seduction and betrayal at Prince’s Theatre in London in 1949. The central love duet for Carmen and Don Jose is said to be among the most sensual couplings ever put on the ballet stage.
