Boston Ballet‘s resident choreographer Jorma Elo updates George Bizet’s heart wrenching tale of love, passion, jealousy and betrayal for the 21st century. In this adaptation, Carmen isn’t a feisty cigarette factory worker but a feisty supermodel. In a fantasyland of haute couture, she is one corner of a love triangle between herself, Don Jose the businessman and race-car driver Escamillo. Elo’s electrifying choreography ramps up the ante, adding to a dangerous bubbling cauldron of tension and desire.
Running from Mar 12-22 at the Citizens Bank Opera House.
