Compañía Nacional de Danza, founded in 1979 and currently under the artistic direction of former New York City Ballet principal Joaquín De Luz, makes its Joyce debut on April 13, 2022 with Carmen, a new reimagining by award-winning choreographer Johan Inger.
The production is set to the beloved music of Georges Bizet as transformed by Rodion Shchedrin. His Carmen Suite — for strings and percussion — is one of the most frequently performed ballet suites of the twentieth century following its premiere at the Bolshoi Theatre in 1971.
Inger’s Carmen, his first narrative work, strips the classic tale down to its mythic and universal elements of passion and revenge. Returning to the source novel by Prosper Mérimée for inspiration, Inger frames the action through the eyes of a child, reexamining the characters through a contemporary lens.
