About the performance

Carmen Suite is a masterpiece of world ballet. The story of the tragic fate of the gypsy Carmen and the soldier Jose who blindly fell in love with her, whom she abandons for the sake of young Torero. A love triangle that ends in tragedy will not leave you indifferent.

For her, the Cuban choreographer Alberto Alonso composed the libretto and choreography of Carmen Suite, and her husband and composer Rodion Shchedrin wrote a transcription for the ballet.
