Bizet's Carmen in Lugano

"Love is a rebellious bird that nobody can tame, and it's all in vain to call it if it chooses to refuse."
Georges Bizet

Ballet in two acts directed and choreographed by Luciano Cannito
with Rossella Brescia, Andrea Volpintesta and Company

Music by Georges Bizet and Marco Schiavoni

A new setting for a Carmen more relevant than ever: Carmen, a refugee who lands in Lampedusa and meets Escamillo the smuggler and Don Jose, a stern policeman. The beautiful and talented Rossella Brescia - sensual and full of life - lets herself be transported by the power of Bizet's music and with a corps de ballet of the highest level, gives us an unforgettable sight.

This performance has been honored with the Award Danza & Danza, the Ginestra d’oro Award as well as the Bucchi Award for Best Production Design. The ballet made box-office records in Italy in the 2009-10 season.
