Society for the Performing Arts presents Ballet Hispanico performing CARMEN.maquia
Society for the Performing Arts presents Ballet Hispanico performing CARMEN.maquia. Recognized as the nation’s leading Latino dance organization, Ballet Hispanico brings this classical tale to San Antonio for a one-night-only performance.
Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia, like Georges Bizet’s iconic opera about a passionate gypsy, is riveting from start to finish. The physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with the subtleties of the Spanish paso doble and flamenco dances. A stunning set design by Luis Crespo and minimalist black-and-white costumes by fashion designer David Delfin evoke the paintings of Pablo Picasso. Highly original and full of elaborate partnering, CARMEN.maquia is a bold and electrifying re-imagining of this tragic tale.
