The best Carmen I've seen,
This review is from: Bizet - Carmen [DVD] (DVD)
When looking for Carmen on DVD I read the reviews and picked this one because of the special staging ant the flamenco extra and I was not disappointed!
A grand-scale production with a large cast of 80,beautifully staged and with an extra 10 minutes flamenco dance.
Maria Ewing combines great singing with powerful acting.Her Carmen is vivid,sensual and full of passion.
The best Carmen I have seen.
If you want to "hear" the opera then you may find better versions on CD,but if you want to"see" the opera, this is the DVD to buy!
I liked the staging,the choreography and the acting.
I give it only 4 stars because of the supporting casting which is good but no more.

I saw this in 1992 and got a VHS cassette tape of it (now no longer have it) as Maria Ewing was wonderful - and the staging etc as you say.
Have only now found this DVD version to buy
Thank you :-)
