Carmen Suite, Infra, Paquita Grand Pas

8,9 August at 7.30pm

'Contrasts' offers three mesmerising and sensational Mariinsky productions. Alberto Alonso's sensual ballet, Carmen Suite,
is set to Rodion Shchedrin's imaginative recreation of Bizet's
colourful opera.
The Mariinsky's magnificent dancers convey the shimmering emotional complexity of renowned British choreographer Wayne McGregor's bewitching Infra to perfection and Spanish passion and excitement return in a thrilling restaging of Petipa's famous Grand Pas from Paquita, to conclude a programme of excitement, grandeur and spectacle.

Set in mythical India, Petipa’s lavish melodrama of love, betrayal and ultimate redemption tells the tale of the temple dancer Nikiya’s doomed love for the warrior Solor. Scenes of exotic spectacle culminate in the choreographic glory of the ‘Kingdom of the Shades’, one of the greatest treasures in the company’s repertoire. The Mariinsky’s matchless soloists and exquisite corps de ballet combine to bring an experience which captures the soul with its magnificence, poignancy and excitement.
