Georges Bizet, Rodion Shchedrin / Igor Stravinsky

Carmen Suite / Petrushka

Кармен-сюита / Петрушка

Svetlana Zakharova as Carmen - a role conceived for legendary Bolshoi prima ballerina Maya Plisetskaya, and Denis Savin as Petrushka - one of Vaslav Nijinsky’s most famous roles, captivate the audience with a two-performance-evening.
Carmen Suite, staged by Alberto Alonso, is a one act ballet about a passionate, free-spirited woman caught in a love triangle. Stanislavsky’s Petrushka, choreographed by Edward Clug, encapsulates the story of a puppet that came to life, burdened by the human emotions of love, jealousy, and rage. Both stories envelop the characters which refuse to abide by the rules, to whom even the thought of submission is repulsive.
