I had missed the original broadcast in 2010 and was looking forward to seeing this new (to me) production and it didn't disappoint. The singing & acting were both first rate and the orchestra, as always, was magnificent

Splendid production!! The camera captured the various emotions that could not be seen as well by the Met audience. The acting and singing made for a memorable evening. We wish we could experience it again tonight.

A wonderful passionate Carmen has come to life under the auspices of the Metropolitan Opera. It is in my opinion a marvelous do not miss occasion to see Carmen as it should always be done. Thanks to the stars and Metropolitan Opera. Well done.

I loved it from start to finish. The harmony of voices and instruments filled my heart with joy and kept me interested in all four chapters of this classical masterpiece. I was amazed with how many people participated in the production, all contributing with their sensational voices and dramatic acting. Watch it with subtitles to be immeresed in the drama that beautiful Carmen creates. Enjoy and by all means fall in love with Carmen. Ignore the warnings, hehe.
