Rehearsal: Carmen

For his latest photo story, photographer Daniel Neuhaus took to the National Ballet of Canada’s rehearsal studios on Queen’s Quay to capture a full rehearsal for the upcoming performances of Carmen. The full length version, to be premiered next week, has been created by famed Italian choreographer, Davide Bombana. Expanded from his 2006 one act interpretation of the story, the ballet evokes sultry, physical passion, that could only be captured by the power of dance.

In anticipation of the show’s run, we are delighted to share the photo story that Neuhaus has captured. From warm-up into rehearsal and right through to the death of Carmen, Neuhaus’ ability to capture drama and movement in his images allows our readers to have an exclusive sneak peek at what is expected to be a phenomenal series of performances. We’re positive that these photos alone will entice you to attend. To purchase tickets, including the discounted DanceBreak option for those of you under 29 years old, visit the NBC website.
