Víctor Ullate has held a press conference on the occasion of his new show, “Carmen”, at Teatro Real.
A “Carmen” renewed, the unconventional and XXI century. Carmen is, in this version, a top model dedicated at night to prostitution, and Don Jose'un police arriving at the brothel to stop. Completely away from the image we have of the character. “No, this time there is nothing in the work Spanish. The Spanish am. No fan ", comments Ullate. “In this version of Carmen the main character it's a mliberal woman, who makes decisions about his own life, who chooses and manages his destiny; the work as a whole speaks of the liberation of the human being and the freedom to be oneself.”
