Choreography by Jiří Pokorný
Dramaturgical cooperation Václav Janeček
Musical setting Davidson Jaconello
 
"I like the way how the character of Carmen loves—she is unconventional and progressive. She is cruel, but she cannot hate. She is free, untightened, and she always fight for the femininity and liberty. This is exactly the opposite to José who becomes desperate and loses the fight with himself due to his selfishness and narrow-minded perception of love." Jiří Pokorný

The sensual and passionate ballet is choreographed by the Czech choreographer Jiří Pokorný, who comes back to Ostrava after four years. In 2018, Jiří prepared the choreography Humpback Runner, which he transposed from the Dutch company NDT2 and which formed a part of the production Rising and Falling.
Creators of the "Ostrava conception" proceed from the original opera libretto by Henri Meilhac a Ludovic Halévy that is based on the novella of the same name by Prosper Mérimée. As far as the music is concerned, they found inspiration in various versions of Shchedrin's ballet suits, well-known movies, and scenic interpretations (e.g., by Carlos Saura and Mats Ek). Same as in any other previous version, Carmen, José, and Micaele, who is given the name Lady M in this ballet, are essential in the story. Sunny 19th-century Spanish Sevilla is replaced by a night club of the contemporary industrial city, but the dramatic tension is not lost, quite the opposite...
