A wonderful experience. I have seen Carmen in a live production, but this is a very different experience. You can not only hear the music, but also see the acting, face expressions and movements. Elina Garanca as Carmen is unbelievable. A great singer, beautiful and sexy. The dancing is top notch. Highly recommended.

I've seen this film of the Met's recent production at least three times now, and it never ceases to move and amaze me. The emotional intensity of the acting and the sublime singing of the leads, Elina Garanca as Carmen and Roberto Alagna as Don Jose, are truly spectacular, and the evocative staging and costuming, updated to the Spanish Civil War period, works perfectly. And of course, Bizet's music is always simply gorgeous. A passionate rendition of a classic tale of passion!

Brilliantly done, especially the role of Carmen by mezzo Elina Garanca. I think I will purchase the DVD of this performance. Picture and sound are splendid.

I saw this production for a second time after 3 years. I am still amazed at the versatility of talent. The acting ,singing ,dancing and music were simply incredible. Such a seductive Carmen! The work that must have gone into this achievement is mind boggling.
