Established in 1970 by National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez and under the artistic direction of Eduardo Vilaro since 2009, New York-based Ballet Hispanico premiered its production of Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s edgy CARMEN.maquia to ovations in 2014. With a title that marries Bizet’s groundbreaking opera Carmen and the dynamics of tauromaquia (bullfighting), the full-length narrative employs a melange of movement styles, an orchestral score and Picasso-inspired sets and costumes to reimagine the ill-fated romance of gypsy temptress Carmen and her tortured suitor Don José. $29-$110, 7:30pm Thu, Lila Cockrell Theatre, 200 E. Market St, (210) 226-2891, artssa.org. — Bryan Rindfuss
