Carmen is as sensual and free-spirited as ever as she finds herself caught in a love triangle. The passionate one-act ballet by Cuban choreographer Alberto Alonso, originally conceived for legendary Bolshoi prima ballerina Maya Plisetskaya, will captivate audiences alongside “Petrushka,” a new creation for the Bolshoi by contemporary choreographer Edward Clug. The double-bill event for cinemas encapsulates and showcases the soul of Russian ballet. The HD film will be shown at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center Thursday, June 13 at 1 p.m. At noon, a pre-film ArtSmart conversation will be moderated by Marya Carmolli, a laboratory and global health researcher at UVM who dances in Ballet Vermont’s Farm to Ballet summer series. Tickets for the film are $17 for adults and $10 for ages 12 and under; the talk is included with film tickets, or is $10 separately. Bring lunch for the talk; a discount for ticket holders is available at Edelweiss Mountain Deli. Info and tickets: sprucepeakarts.org.
