Love is a rebellious bird that nobody can tame

Benjamin Millepied, celebrated choreographer (Black Swan) and one of the world’s most acclaimed dancers (former principal soloist, New York City Ballet) makes his directorial debut with this dazzling modern-day retelling of one of history’s most famous love stories and operas, featuring a new music score by Nicholas Britell (Moonlight) and filmed in Australia. Melissa Barrera (In The Heights), Paul Mescal (The Lost Daughter, Aftersun) and Rossy de Palma (Parallel Mothers) head a stellar cast in this explosion of dance and passion.

Carmen is an opera that I grew up with. Somehow it was a story that resonated with me as a child, it always stayed with me.” (Benjamin Millepied)
