  • A sultry start to the season – Carmen – is a thrilling and dangerous tale of ill-fated attraction. The ballet features Bizet’s famous score for opera, but the similarities end there. Associate Artistic Director Sasha Janes’ Carmen takes the story of passion and betrayal from Spain to Charlotte, set in 1934 during the textile mill strikes. In Janes’ creation, Carmen is as a feisty mill worker who seduces her captor, a National Guard soldier called in to temper the strike. Carmen moves on to a new lover, a baseball star in the Carolinas Baseball League, which was created from textile mills fielding teams throughout the Carolinas.
