Carmen

On the streets of Seville, naïve soldier Don José falls under the spell of the gypsy Carmen. After forsaking his children, his sweetheart, and his military duties, he still loses his newfound flame to Escamillo, a dashing bullfighter. Spurred into a jealous rage, Don José seeks revenge in violence, leading to a climactic end.

In Ajkun Ballet’s Carmen, choreographer Chiara Ajkun positions the titular character at the helm, with the powerful movements of the piece symbolizing—as Ajkun’s website describes—”a leader of change for women’s free choices.” London Times agrees, declaring the ballet “an outstanding success” and praising Ajkun for her “wonderfully more elaborate buildings-up and much finer characterization of the various personalities.”

Ajkun Ballet Theatre

The globetrotting careers of dancers Leonard and Chiara Ajkun inspired the scope of their very own Ajkun Ballet Theatre. Here, they continue to direct classic ballets and choreograph an average of five new programs each year. The company’s expansive repertoire ranges from large-scale productions such as Swan Lake, with its famous robot battles, to one-act ballets such as Spartacus.
