WHAT: Good tidings for those who missed out on tickets to the sold-out performance of Antonio Gades’ critically-acclaimed flamenco version of Carmen, which first debuted in Paris in 1983. Another date has now been added at the historic Odeon.
With choreography by the late great Spanish dancer and film director Carlos Aura, the production has been roundly praised for drawing out the purity of the raw emotions of the main protagonists. Carmen tells the story of Don José, a naïve soldier, who is seduced by the fiery gypsy Carmen and abandons both his childhood sweetheart and military duties to pursue her, losing her to the glamorous matador Escamillio with tragic consequences.
Tickets cost 28-78 euros and can be purchased online at www.viva.gr or by calling 11876.
WHEN: Tuesday, October 10 at 9pm.
WHERE: Herod Atticus Theater, Dionysiou Areopagitou, Acropolis.
