Beautiful production

The most beautifully visual Carmen I've seen. The performers were so attractive relative to the stereotype of the older tradition of opera performers. Today, it's such an incredibly difficult profession to aspire towards. The voices of this staging did not disappoint. I was captivated by Bizets wonderful score, the virtuoso met opera orchestra, the singer's......just great . I loved it!

This is the best Carmen I have ever seen. The chemistry between Elina Garanca and Roberto Alagna is outstanding!

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.

Just a quick note to say this was one of the finest performances of Carmen ever. The voices are marvelous. Carmen electrifingly lusty and expressive; Don Jose truly smitten, and Michaelina poignant. Supporting cast more than fine. The music goes without saying, of course, and this orchestra did admirably. Well worth your time even if you have never seen an opera before. This is the one to see.
