Repertoire classic as energetic revue

Seductive, independent, radical: Carmen is a product of overlapping myths. Sometimes she appears as a strong woman, sometimes as a projection screen for male fantasies of exoticism or as a clichéd image of the femme fatale. The Argentinean choreographer Constanza Macras is known for her political and humorous dance theatre that transcends genre boundaries. For her first production of an opera classic, she takes on the myth of Carmen and brings out the revue side of Bizet's masterpiece. The award-winning conductor Maxime Pascal is appearing at Theater Basel for the first time.
