CARMEN – Flamenco meets Contemporary

CARMEN – Flamenco meets Contemporary

For the first time, Moveo and Alegria Dance Company, in collaboration with Teatru Manoel, join forces to fuse Flamenco and Contemporary Dance to narrate this doomed romance. What better way to portray the distinct characters of the fiery Carmen and the delicate nature of Micaela but through these two contrasting styles of dance?

Carmen will be performed on the 3-4-5 February 2017 at Teatru Manoel at 8pm, all to live music. Tickets available from http://www.booking.teatrumanoel.com.mt Tel:21246389
