Don't miss the European debut of America’s premier Latino dance company Ballet Hispánico performing CARMEN.maquia, a Picasso-inspired, contemporary take on Bizet’s beloved classic.

The physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco. 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, Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia is a bold and electrifying reimagining of this tragic tale.

The evening begins with Linea Recta, in which Annabelle Lopez Ochoa imagines an original and explosive movement language premised upon the theme of partnership and performed to flamenco guitar by Eric Vaarzon Morel.



“When Ballet Hispanico’s dancers take the stage, watch out. No one struts, kicks, spins, leaps, and gyrates the way they do. Their joy is infectious” Newsday

“This nouvelle Carmen twists, jerks, jumps and finally seduces for a tour de force” Chicago Tribune

“A masterpiece” Chicago Sun-Times
