Compañía Nacional de Danza brings its spectacular contemporary adaptation of Carmen to Santa Barbara for two nights.

Johan Inger’s Carmen is a contemporary retelling of the classic story ballet, envisioning the tale through the eyes of a child, with its heroine a courageous and modern woman, the mountains of Ronda reimagined as poor suburbs, the military now senior executives and the bullfighter recast as a movie star.

Tues., March 6 & Wed., March 7 at 8 p.m.
Granada Theatre
Tickets: $19 for students; $35-$65 public
