After last year's sell-out season, the world's leading ballerina Irina Kolesnikova returns to the London Coliseum with a new take on an old classic, Her Name Was Carmen.


Fiery, rich and beautiful, Carmen is a deadly cocktail of passion and tragedy. After her aristocratic family is murdered by ruthless smugglers, Carmen finds shelter in a refugee camp on the outskirts of Europe... here she becomes entangled in a love triangle with tragic consequences.


Her Name Was Carmen is a new full-length ballet in two acts brought to life by 50 dancers from the critically acclaimed St Petersburg Ballet Theatre. It is set to a

re-orchestrated version of Bizet's much-loved score, and is played live by the orchestra of English National Opera.


Her Name Was Carmen marks an unprecedented collaboration between the St Petersburg Ballet Theatre and international aid agency Oxfam. £1 from every ticket sold will go towards Oxfam's efforts to provide shelter and support to refugees in the Western Balkans.


St Petersburg Ballet Theatre. The producers reserve the right to substitute any scheduled artist should the need arise. Tickets from £25 - book now.
