The Pacific Ballet Theatre commenced their 15th Anniversary Season with a sold-out performance of ‘Carmen’ at the historic El Portal Theatre presented by On-Camera Personality Rachel McCord on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

Directed by Natasha Middleton of the Pacific Ballet Dance Theatre, Carmen was a fierce and impassioned ballet filled with energy and brilliant choreography. Set in Seville, Spain in the 19th century, Carmen tells the provocative tale of a beautiful gypsy girl named Carmen and a soldier named Don Jose through dance and music.The dancers’ natural talent, emotional expression, and meticulous preparation were inherent, keeping the audience on their toes, waiting to see what happened next. There truly was never a dull moment.

Numerous VIPs were in attendance including actress Bai Ling (The Crow), Dancer/Choreographer Swoop , Producer Kalissa Miller, Mary de Vachon, Mr. & Mrs. Robert Barbera, Doreen Alderman, Mr & Mrs. John Wenger & Patricia Macauley.

Guests enjoyed champagne and mouthwatering hand-made chocolates generously provided by GB Treats and celebrity host Rachel McCord was exclusively gifted a pair of Touchpoints  .

The cast of “Carmen” is: Principal dancers Elen Harutunyan as Carmen, Grigori Arakelyan as Don Jose, Damara Titmus as Micaela, Jekyns  Pelaez as Escamillo,  Marine de Vachon as Mercedes, Natalie Grina as Frasquita , Brandon Forrest as Remendado,  Albertossy Espinosa at Cato, and special guest artists Natalia and Oleg Loparevi along with an outstanding corps of dancers.

I highly recommend anyone seeking to explore LA’s thriving culture and performing arts scene to attend a show produced by the Pacific Ballet Dance Theatre!
