Philadelphia Ballet Artistic Director Angel Corella Debuts Carmen

Harlequin was delighted to receive an invitation to partake in the exquisite experience of Angel Corella’s newest masterpiece, Carmen while commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Philadelphia Ballet.

On the evening of Friday, October 6th, 2023, the grand Opening Weekend Gala unfolded in all its splendor, replete with a captivating ballet performance and a Spanish-inspired dinner. This year’s festivities are dedicated to honoring the world premiere production of Artistic Director Angel Corella’s Carmen.

The full-length ballet performance showcases meticulously crafted costumes and choreography that seamlessly fuse the rich tapestry of traditional Spanish dance with the grace of classical ballet. The performance featured Bizet’s iconic score, performed by the Philadelphia Ballet orchestra as an original arrangement by Music Director, Beatrice Jona Affron, and Angel Corella. Between bullfights, bandits, and lovers, Carmen captures a passion that burns as bright as the sun in southern Spain. It was indeed a fun-filled, Spanish-themed evening!

Harlequin Floors is proud to be the Official Floor Provider of Philadelphia Ballet on stage and in the studio!

The proceeds from this remarkable evening will go toward supporting the Ballet’s artistic endeavors both on stage and within the broader community.
