Carmen, American Repertory Ballet, State Theater, 15 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick
8 p.m. ., $27 to $57.,

American Repertory Ballet returns to State Theatre New Jersey this fall with this dazzling triple-bill, featuring Kirk Peterson’s Carmen.

The program opens with Kirk Peterson’s The Eyes that Gently Touch, set to the driving rhythms of Philip Glass’ Mad Rush, culminating in a dance replete with romance and thrilling movement. Next is Mary Barton’s Straight Up with a Twist (an ARB signature performance since its inception), a work set to the eclectic sounds of Kaila Flexer and Third Ear which showcases the versatility of ARB’s dancers and Barton’s choreographic genius. The performance concludes with another company premiere: Peterson’s Carmen. Based on Georges Bizet’s opera, Peterson tells the tale of Carmen, a passionate, free-spirited woman, the fickle Don José and her love triangle between Don José and popular bullfighter Escamillo.
