Carmen is the stuff of legend. Ruthless, dangerous, fiercely independent, and passionate, she manipulates every situation to her favour.

Performed to Georges Bizet’s classic score, the Royal New Zealand Ballet brings to life the story of the world’s most famous man-eater in a vibrant, contemporary dance work.

Set in the metropolis of modern-day Rio de Janeiro, Carmen works in a cigarette factory by day and hangs out with a gang of low-life criminals by night. When José makes the mistake of falling in love with Carmen, things spiral out of control. As José’s world falls apart, Carmen’s desire to live life on her terms sets a course that can only lead to disaster.

Choreographed by Didy Veldman for the UK’s Northern Ballet Theatre (Dracula), Carmen is dramatic dance theatre at its best.
