Carmen is a timeless tragedy, never more relevant than today. It is a tale of desire, seduction, jealousy and betrayal. And in this, Ted Brandsen's minimalist production, the devastating finale is heightened by the complete lack of artifice. Rodion Shchedrin's fluid and muscular musical adaptation fits this raw and original performance by the West Australian Ballet like Carmen's red dress - tight, revealing and, like the production, impossible to ignore.
