A scene from ‘Carmen Suite’.

Carmen is as passionate and free-spirited as ever as she finds herself caught in a love triangle. The passionate one-act ballet by Cuban choreographer Alberto Alonso, originally conceived for legendary Bolshoi prima ballerina Maya Plisetskaya, will captivate audiences alongside Petrushka, a new creation for the Bolshoi by contemporary choreographer Edward Clug. It is a story of three puppets at the Saint Petersburg’s carnival, in an evening encapsulating the soul of Russian ballet.
