the London premiere of Carmen with Natalia Osipova and Isaac Hernández

Prosper Mérimée’s timeless story of love, passion and murder leaps offstage to merge with the real lives of the show’s dancers in this contemporary adaptation.

Bird&Carrot presents the London premiere of Carmen, starring international ballet superstars Natalia Osipova (The Royal Ballet) and Isaac Hernández.

Created by acclaimed Dutch choreographer Didy Veldman, this show allows the audience to see the characters of Carmen, Don José and Escamillo not only on stage, but also offstage, where dancers foster their own relationships.

The famous story that they have been re-enacting is slowly entering their everyday lives. Using hilarious quick changes, the dancers move in and out of character, making reality less certain.

With strong physical movement language, theatricality and a quirky sense of humour, this production bursts with energy and shines a new light on multi-award winning Natalia Osipova.
