About this product
- DescriptionThe seductive world of flamenco forms the backdrop for a classic tale of independence found, lost, and reclaimed. Like Bizet's legendary gypsy, Carmen La Coja (The Cripple) Santos is hilarious, passionate, triumphant, and mesmerizing.A rewned flamenco dancer in Chicago despite the legacy of childhood polio, Carmen has long enjoyed an affair with Agustin, the married director of her troupe--a romance that's w growing stale. When she begins a new, passionate liaison with Malo, Agustin's grandson and a dancer of natural genius, an angry rivalry is sparked. Carmen finally makes her way back to happiness in this funny, fiery story that's equal parts soap opera, tragicomedy, and rhapsody.
