Joyce Theater

Founded in 1979, Compañía Nacional de Danza, currently under the artistic direction of former New York City Ballet principal Joaquin de Luz, makes its Joyce debut with Carmen, a new reimagining by award-winning choreographer John Inger. Set to the beloved music of Georges Bizet, arranged by Rodion Shchedrin, Inger’s Carmen strips the classic tale down to its mythic and universal elements of passion and revenge. Returning to the source novel by Prosper Mérimée for inspiration, Inger frames the action through the eyes of a child, re-examining the characters through a contemporary lens. 

Curtain Chat: Wed, Apr 13
