Car­nal Car­men

Ev­ery­one rec­og­nizes Bizet’s opera Car­men, but you prob­a­bly haven’t seen the ballet. Ital­ian chore­og­ra­pher Da­vide Bom­bana has recon­ceived the tragic love tri­an­gle tale, em­pha­siz­ing the story’s car­nal­ity. For Lu­mi­nato, the Na­tional Ballet of Canada is per­form­ing it along with Na­tional alum Do­minique Dumais’s Skin Divers, in­spired by Anne Michaels’s po­etry. June 6 to 14 at the Four Sea­sons Cen­tre. 416345-9595.

Aye, Clau­dia

Clau­dia Moore’s been fas­ci­nated by the King Lear story for years. Now she’s cre­ated a work to pre­cede Drift­wood Theatre’s per­for­mance of the play, but it’s only get­ting two lo­cal per­for­mances – one on July 11 (at Tod­mor­den Mills) and one on Au­gust 21 (at Withrow Park). When dancers like Heidi Strauss, Lin­nea Swan, Gerry Tren­tham and Moore her­self are in­volved (Lear’s played by a pup­pet, ma­nip­u­lated by Jerry Sil­ver­berg), you won’t want to miss it. drift­woodthe­atre.com.

King Lear gets a new spin from Clau­dia Moore.
