Roland Petit’s “Carmen” (1949) with Laurent Hilaire & Alessandra Ferri…

March 24, 2016

Score: George Bizet

Carmen is a ballet created by Roland Petit and his company ‘Les Ballets de Paris’ at the Prince’s Theatre in London on 21 February 1949, which has entered the repertory of ballet companies in France and around the world. This version is in five scenes and represents a striking admixture of classical ballet, Spanish-style movement, mime, and freshly invented dramatic dance action.
