Music by Georges Bizet and Rodion Shchedrin

Igor Dobrovolskiy takes a contemporary slant on the famous tale of the Gypsy.

Don José falls in love with Carmen and sacrifices everything to be with her. When Carmen becomes infatuated with Escamillo, the toreador, she loses interest in Don José whose love quickly turns to violent jealousy. The story of Carmen is one of passion, seduction, drama and revenge set to the iconic score of Bizet and Shchedrin.
