Check out this wonderful biography on Roland Petit (January 13, 1924 – July 10, 2011), the choreographer behind what is arguably the most iconic version of Carmen to date. His Carmen scandalized London in 1949 but over time proved to be his biggest success. A wonderful way to remember a choreographer that spent his career bending the rules.

Christopher Stowell’s world premiere Carmen takes the stage in October 2011 with Nicolo Fonte’s world premiere Petrouchka.
