State Street Ballet brings ‘Carmen’

by DGO Web Administrator

Love. Jealousy. Fate. Sounds like reality TV, but nope – just a night at the ballet.

The State Street Ballet of Santa Barbara, California, the ballet company that brings “The Nutcracker” to the stage here every Christmas, is back in Durango this weekend at the Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College for its performance of the ballet “Carmen.”

It’s a story for the ages: Boy meets girl, girl gets arrested and boy is told to take her to jail. Girl convinces boy to let her go, and he agrees on the condition that she love him. She takes off and boy is arrested. Girl takes up with another guy (a bullfighter, no less), and ultimately, someone doesn’t make it out of the story alive.

State Street’s “Carmen” is choreographed by William Soleau, choreographer of more than 20 ballets for the company. In this production, Soleau breaks down the “fourth wall” of the stage – an imaginary boundary between the people on stage and the audience – allowing audience members to move from passive spectators to more voyeuristic participants in the unfolding drama.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets cost $44/$34 and are available at
