Beautiful set design and costumes enhance this performance set in Spain
Closing this exciting season of the City Ballet of San Diego is Carmen choreographed by Elizabeth Wistrich and Four Seasons created by Geoff Gonzalez.
First, Carmen is a is a condensed version based on Bizet’s famous opera of the same name.
As Mother’s Day approaches, this is a perfect time to show how much you appreciate them with a surprise night out at the ballet.
This one-act critically acclaimed adaptation of Carmen is one of Wistrich’s most popular.
Created in 1988 and danced to George Bizet’s beautiful score, Carmen tells the story of its beautiful namesake; a sultry factory worker in 1820’s Spain.
She is so enchanting men find it hard to resist her which creates a love triangle steeped in tragedy.
Wonderfully elaborate costumes created by famous designer David Heuvel coupled with detailed Spanish scenery are used as the backdrop to this unforgettable story.
Music by Georges Bizet Choreography by Elizabeth Wistrich
In addition to Carmen, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is a premiere created by Geoff Gonzalez, who was selected last year as one of only 10 choreographers to be a part of the New York Choreographic Institute, supported by New York City Ballet.
Geoff has taken a contemporary spin on this classic score by Antonio Vivaldi.
So take that special person in your life out to the ballet and enjoy these two elegant performances by City Ballet of San Diego.
