About show

The pearl of Lviv Opera repertoire is not only the famous opera “Carmen” by Georges Bizet, but also a one-act ballet “Carmen Suite” in the interpretation of the modern Russian composer Rodion Shchedrin.

Using the most striking melodies and rhythms from the opera “Carmen” by the French composer, Shchedrin made brilliant contemporary arrangement, adding in complex rhythms and colourful orchestration and extended the group of percussion instruments.

The story is based on a passionate and jealous love of the gypsy girl Carmen and the soldier Jose, whom Carmen leaves for the love of brave Toreador, causing a tragic parting and death.

But in the contemporary production of Lviv Opera, the story does not take place in sunny Spain, but in a space outlined by modern decorations and costumes, where a life drama unfolds, featuring modern women and men.

Dancers of Lviv National Academic Opera and Ballet Theater named after S. Krushelnytska presented “Carmen Suite” by J. Bizet and R. Shchedrin in Poland, the Czech Republic, France and other countries.
