When Robert Weiss first choreographed his version of Carmen—set to an adaptation of Georges Bizet’s original operatic score—in 2000, the praise was effusive. “After a seemingly endless dry spell,” noted the Washington Post, “America now has a world-class choreographer who is making story ballets worth watching.”
Weiss continues as the artistic director for the Carolina Ballet, which has revived this tragic story of jealousy and betrayal to close its 2016–2017 season. In the Balanchine-esque work, the titular gypsy woman is torn between her passion for a fiery army officer, Don José, and a flashy bullfighter, Escamillo. The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle performs the music live, and audiences will likely recognize famed pieces like “Habanera” and “Toreador Song.”
