Review: Ballet San Jose dazzles with 'Carmen' - Contra Costa Times

In the bedroom segment with its infamously erotic, though no longer that shocking, duet, Meijer embodied plenty of Carmen's self-satisfied narcissism but not enough of that louche man-eating property. She used those legs like daggers, kicking, stabbing and raising them in triumph. I cannot remember standing ovations in this theater contemporary on until finally the curtain refused to come up one more time. And the news on Friday that company executive director Stephanie Ziesel had stepped down seemed to have no endurance on the performances. The lovers' final, bullfight-inspired duet was pure Petit theatricality. San Jose's dancers performed all of it with spitfire drive and just the right note of cynicism. The chair dance turns into a revolving door for lovers. With Roland Petit's 1949 "Carmen," a raw and cynical angle on one man's love for the wrong woman, and Twyla Tharp's 1986 "In the Upper Room," a rip-roaring essay on the sibling rivalry between ballet and new-fashioned dance, Ballet San Jose closed... At the age of 46, Carreno stepped for the first time into the role of the hapless Don Jose. Attempting catastrophe, it didn't rise up to it. Ommi Pipit-Suksun and Rudy Candia will perform the leads on the Sunday matinee. Petit's "Carmen" thrives on the drive of Parisian cabaret dancing, including some of its sardonic wit. the bandits' stomping and beating the floor to mock Don Jose and egg on Carmen recantation brutal tribal rituals. It was a generous gift to the company and a tribute to his artistry. As one the three bandit leaders, the still splendidly leaping Ramon Moreno -- who together with Beth Ann Namey will seclude at the end of the season -- sported a comedian's red wig. The appropriately named program, "Masterworks of Movement and Theatre," continues at 8 p. m. Saturday and 1:30 p. m. Sunday at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts. His finishes may not be what they once upon a time were but his exquisitely tight turns and his ability to make a role his own were glorious to see. Alexsandra Meijer's splendid Carmen sported the shortest skirt and the longest legs in the cosmos. Yet theatrically "Carmen" throws powerful punches.
