Carmen, London, June 2014

‘classic ballet reworked in fine style’ 
Sunday Business Post  


‘powerful, stylish ballet’ The Irish Mail on Sunday


Following Ballet Ireland’s hugely successful tour throughout Ireland last Autumn, the company is delighted to bring this captivating ballet to London audiences. 


CarmenAgainst the backdrop of Bizet’s passionate score, this scorching story unleashes the creative talents of Ballet Ireland’s choreographer in residence, Morgann Runacre-Temple.  Carmen follows the story of a young, naïve soldier Jose, who is bewitched by the beautiful and fiery gypsy, Carmen.


Obsessed and reckless, Jose turns his back on respectable life to be with her. But Carmen, like love, is a bird that cannot be tamed and Jose’s desire to posses her eventually destroys them both.
