[image-1]Set in the gritty back streets of a Spanish factory town, Carmen follows the exploits of the titular man-eating heroine as she makes her way through a bevy of unsavory men, taunting, teasing, and shamelessly flirting along the way. She is, according to creator and Resident Choreographer Jill Eathorne Bahr, “a gypsy and a free spirit, possessed of a wild and rebellious nature combined with a charismatic appeal for the opposite sex.”

Carmen is not a love story as much as a journey of fate and unbridled passion. From the moment they meet in a factory fight, Carmen and Don Jose realize a dynamic electricity is building between them.  Don Jose’s desire to possess the unwitting Carmen serves as the crux of this sexy and sensuous balletic story. Obsession and envy lead to murder and sends the fate of Carmen into an endless but enigmatic downward spiral in the fashion of the greatest of tragic love stories.

Carmen opens Friday Oct. 3 7:30 p.m. at CBT’s Black Box Theatre, 477 King St.

Additional Dates: Oct. 4 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 5 3 p.m.
