English National Ballet presents Johan Inger’s Carmen
English National Ballet presents the UK premiere of Johan Inger’s award-winning Carmen at Sadler’s Wells, London from 27 March – 06 April.
Inger, whose work is rarely seen in the UK, has boldly reimagined the classic tale of seduction and obsession with choreography that combines contemporary and classical movement to powerful effect.
Nine large movable mirrors frame the action – transporting audiences from a town square through to the troubled mind of Don José. Menace and foreboding loom over the stage, thanks to additional music by Marc Alvarez which complements Bizet and Shchedrin’s classic score, performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
Inger has choreographed for major companies around the world, including Nederlands Dans Theater and Spain’s National Dance Company. He won the Prix Benois de la Danse for Carmen.
