5.0 out of 5 stars So many years, so many years.
For years and years I have been looking for this. Oh I tried all the big-boys, and they weren't even able to order it ! Such is life. And then I got this Internet thing, and guess what I found. There must be a catch I though as I tentatively placed my order on the Internet. So many scary stories abounded as I recalled what MIGHT go wrong. But they didn't, it arrived, and...

3.0 out of 5 stars If only the diction was better
I was really excited that I had found this recording of Carmen sung in English, I am an Amatuer Dramatic member and we are rehearsing Carmen for a production early in 2010 so needed to get familiar with the music, I find it is an easy way to learn the words etc. But it is disappointing with this CD that the diction is very poor and it is difficult to hear the words...

5.0 out of 5 stars So many years, so many years., 14 Sep 2013

For years and years I have been looking for this. Oh I tried all the big-boys, and they weren't even able to order it ! Such is life. And then I got this Internet thing, and guess what I found. There must be a catch I though as I tentatively placed my order on the Internet. So many scary stories abounded as I recalled what MIGHT go wrong. But they didn't, it arrived, and I greedily clamped my headphones on and wallowed in it. Reading the booklet over and over again, so as not to miss every inflection, every word, brill. But then I am a bit biased.

I was really excited that I had found this recording of Carmen sung in English, I am an Amatuer Dramatic member and we are rehearsing Carmen for a production early in 2010 so needed to get familiar with the music, I find it is an easy way to learn the words etc. But it is disappointing with this CD that the diction is very poor and it is difficult to hear the words. However, the booklet that comes with the double CD is very good and prints most of the words so you can work it out for yourself in the end, but not easy when when you are driving a car at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Carmen fails to shine, 12 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although an orchestrally brilliant recording, it is, at times, difficult to hear the words clearly. At times the performers seem to be almost whispering their lines.

I purchased this CD for my wife as a Christmas present. She is very pleased with it so I have to say it has been a success.
