Russian Ballet Orlando Presents Carmen

Sunday, February 20, 2022

Russian Ballet and Opera Orlando Present Carmen

The Passionate Story of a Beautiful Gypsy Girl Caught in a Tragic Love Triangle

Back by popular demand, Russian Ballet Orlando and Opera Orlando will present Carmen, the tragic tale of a fiery gypsy girl’s doomed love affair, and Don Josè, her lover who kills her in a jealous rage. This amazing production will feature RBO’s professional company performing the lead roles, in collaboration with fabulous singers from Opera Orlando. 

“I’m thrilled to bring together the amazing artists of Opera Orlando and RBO Company,” says Russian Ballet Orlando Artistic Director, Katerina Fedotova. “It will be an incredible fusion of music and dance.”

The ballet Carmen was originally created in 1949 by Roland Petit and his company “Les Ballets de Paris” at the Prince’s Theater in London, with music taken from Georges Bizet’s 1875 opera of the same name. The ballet centers around the fiery Carmen and her seduction of the soldier Don Josè, whom she betrays when she meets the dashing torreador, Escamillo.

Carmen is known for its drama and passion, as love is fought for, won, and ultimately lost in an exhilarating one hour performance that will have the audience on the edge of their seats. By adding the singing artistry of Opera Orlando, the stage is set for a breathtaking experience.

Of special note, there will be an intimate gala presenting excerpts from Carmen and other ballets taking place Thursday, February 24th at The Abbey in Downtown Orlando.
