WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A vibrant ode to womanhood, and a radical reimagining of Bizet's voluptuous opera heroine - from the brilliant flamenco dancer and choreographer Maria Pages. Visionary and flamboyant, and blending dance, music, poetry and theatre, Yo Carmen digs deep into the primal emotions of flamenco - and is unforgettably beautiful. The show brings together eight dancers in Pag?s's fluid flamenco choreography. Seven musicians - featuring violin and cello alongside flamenco guitarists and singers - provide a live soundtrack of Bizet's familiar opera tunes, the popular songs that inspired them, and gripping original flamenco. Performed in Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, French and English with English supertitles.
