The reviews are in, and Columbus can’t get enough of Carmen.maquia.
Haven’t seen it yet? Lucky for you, we have four more shows: Feb. 11-14 (making it a perfect Valentine’s outing).
…In her first starring role with BalletMet, Karen Wing dazzles as Carmen, a calculating Gypsy who has soldier Don Jose (Gabriel Gaffney Smith) in her crosshairs. Even if she wasn’t the only dancer dressed in black, Wing would stand out for her admirable technique and expressive acting.”
“Upon first glance, the sterile, white sets that greet the audience once the curtain rises on BalletMet’s “Carmen.maquia” might have many theatergoers double-checking their programs.
…Yet it is on this blank canvas that the dancers of BalletMet create color through movement and emotion, effectively painting a vibrant, Pablo Picasso-esque portrait of humanity.”
“It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Truly stunning. Going back tomorrow night.” —Cheryl Simon
