Carmen

Johan Inger

Ballet in two acts

The ballet »Carmen« by Swedish star choreographer Johan Inger fits seamlessly into the tradition of the great Carmen interpretations ranging from John Cranko and Mats Ek to Carlos Acosta. From a child’s perspective, he tells of the tragic entanglement between Carmen, Don José and Escamillo, of their passion, jealousy, revenge and hatred in gripping images of great clarity. »Carmen« was created in 2015 for the Compañía Nacional de Danza in Madrid to music by Bizet, Shchedrin and Álvares. In 2016, the choreographer received the Prix Benois de la Danse – the Oscar of the ballet world – in Moscow for his first full-length ballet.
