About Carmen

Ballet Ireland’s Carmen comes to the Gaiety Theatre

Choreography; Morgann Runacre-Temple
Design; Lorna Ritchie
Lighting; Eamon Fox
Music; Georges Bizet

Against 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.

This age old story, as relevant today as ever, will be re-told in a modern setting. Runacre-Temple’s up to date style “gets it”, according to the Irish Times, stretching classical ballet to new heights.

Passion, drama and colour in abundance! Ballet Ireland's talented dancers will sizzle in this fantastic new ballet.

Bizet's music is pure dance.

Don’t miss this fabulous new production for 2013.
