Bizet’s “Carmen” Comes to Southern California

 
 

The Pacific Ballet Dance Theatre celebrates it’s 17 season with it’s first-ever tour featuring Bizet’s Carmen. The company will bring the dramatic fire and passion of Bizet’s opera to stages in Lancaster, Thousand Oaks and Redondo Beach over the next two weekends. The company’s artistic director Natasha Middleton’s vision for the ballet company is steeped in the Ballet Russe dance tradition which has set apart from other Contemporary ballet companies.
