Detroit Opera House debut! Spain’s Compañía Nacional de Danza will perform Carmen, in choreographer Johan Inger’s reimagined version of Georges Bizet’s opera. This will be the only U.S. performance of Inger’s Carmen during the company’s North American tour. The staging is a contemporary look at Prosper Mérimée’s story of passion and vengeance as seen through the eyes of a child. “There is a certain mystery within this character,” states Inger. “It could be any kid, it could be Don José when he was a boy, it could be a young Micaëla or Carmen and José’s unborn child. It could even be ourselves, with our very first goodness wounded due to a violent experience that, though brief, has had a negative impact in our lives and our ability to interact with others forever.”
