We enjoyed the opera very much. My only complaint was that the 30 minute intermission was too long. If the production is not live, why can't it be a 15 minute intermission?

The production, while gimmicky, was moving. The best part was that Bizet's music was complete and unchanged. The Carmen was the most energetic I have ever seen. Alagna was superb - I worried about him as he jumped around on top of the cars. I am so glad I attended this showing.

I had never seen Carmen, but always enjoyed hearing the music every now and then. This was a modernized version of the opera. The director was very clever with the sets/props, etc, but I would be interested to see a version that is more accurate to the time period the opera was written for. The singing, acting, and music, and getting the virtual experience of being in the Spanish Opera House in Barcelona was what made this so special. It's not quite like seeing it live when you see it on a screen, but I thought it was pretty neat! They zoom in a lot, so it's like you have a front seat but also get an overview every now and then. As for "Carmen" itself, the music was absolutely wonderful....the plot of the play was good, but I wouldn't say it was my favorite. I was very impressed with the singing and acting, and it's worth it to see it just for the music! The 30 min. intermission would be better if we could have perks like wine/cocktails/ something...esp. since we paid a lot!
