Whose Carmen does the company perform?

Here's the write-up on their website:

"Septime Webre closes the 2010.2011 season with his smoldering Carmen. This passion-filled portrayal of the feisty title character, set to Georges Bizet’s spirited score, is complimented by Pablo Picasso-inspired sets. This program also features riveting world premieres by TWB Associate Artistic Director David Palmer and Edwaard Liange, whose Wunderland captivated DC audiences."

I can't find any information about staging on their web site:

"Join the dancers of The Washington Ballet for this swashbuckling adventure of pirates, pashas, and the slave girls who love them in this thrilling, new production of the 19th century classic by Marius Petipa. The story of lovers Conrad and Medora, the evil Seid Pasha, and company of corsairs enchants and excites. Don’t miss this adventuresome company premiere!"

This write-up in the Washington Post doesn't say either: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/conte...0022802808.html

It's interesting that this will be at the Eisenhower Theatre at the Kennedy Center the same week (April 5-10, 2011) that NYCB will be doing three Balanchine programs at the Opera house. This might make a trip to DC worth the visit!

It's Anna-Marie Holmes version. They did her Don Q this past season.
