Paquita vs Carmen

Paquita vs. Carmen is the third installment in the Citie Ballet Educational Access Project. Two classic stories of feisty women from Spain — both vastly different tales about an officer and a gypsy girl — round out the season. Paquita, set to the music of Leon Minkus, and François Chevennement’s adaptation of Prosper Mérimée’s novel Carmen, set to Peter Breiner’s “Carmen Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra,” both bring stunning visuals and compelling performances.
