Up Close on Hope (Program 2)


Up Close on Hope, Program 2

Full Length: Carmen

Choreography: Viktor Plotnikov
Music: Georges Bizet

Seduction and passion with a refreshing twist, The Providence Journal acclaimed in it's 2003 premiere, "brace yourself -- for something refreshingly different. This Carmen is contemporary, and good." Viktor Plotnikov's adaptation of the iconic Bizet opera is a bold retelling of the classic story of seduction and passion. Then an unknown choreographer, Plotnikov's first full length work received resounding acclaim for his unique style and choreographic voice. The Journal remarked, "this story is told with music and movement. Often it's unorthodox. Frequently it's funny. And always it's engaging."
