Notes de programme :
The fascinating and dramatic story of Prosper Mérimée's Carmen is told through music in Elizabeth Raum's adaptation of her ballet, Carmen, the Passion, performed by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet in 2007. Each movement brings to life a scene from the story, evoking the romance, the desire, and the fatal conclusion of Carmen's relationship with the two men vying for her love. The original version began with a trumpet fanfare as at the bull ring, setting the scene for the story to follow. This was replaced in the octet by the clarinet as the instrument with the same clarion properties. A lively march follows that goes directly into Mv 2, The Fortune Teller, which predicts the dark tragedy about to follow. The Girls at the Cigar Factory, Mv. 3, is playful as would be the ladies working with Carmen. Mv. 4, Carmen's Theme, begins as a lovely melody reflecting her youth and beauty, but soon the Fortune Teller appears and transforms it to a song of tragedy. Mv. 5, The Soldiers March and Fugue is built on motifs from the other movements and includes a familiar measure of music from the opera, Carmen, by George Bizet. And finally in the last movement, while Carmen and Escamillo are locked in a sultry dance of passion, she has a premonition of her fate but still she continues with the dance ending in her death.
