Choreography and directions Tiina Lindfors.

The Carmen dance piece uses Rodion Štšedrin’s genius adaptation of Bizet’s opera. The choreography of the drama combines classic movement and modern dance to form a strong dance-theatre narrative.

The role of Carmen is performed by Anneke Lönnroth, who has made a fantastic solo career in the Finnish national ballet. In Lindfors’ work the classic is interpreted in a new way that inevitably moves toward its culmination, but has glimpses of humour among the tragic twists. The  performance is a strong celebration of dance that matches Schredrin’s musical tornado of rhythm in force.
