I went to the cinema expecting to see another predictable production of the opera but I was so wrong. It was wonderful. Pure enjoyment and the rest of the packed theatre thought the same. Well done to the production team and the whole cast who were amazing!! I look forward to watching the creative production again.

Tutti ( o quasi tutti) sanno che l'Australia è la terra dei canguri, animali di grande vigoria e capaci di salti spettacolari. Non me ne vogliano gli amici australiani: passi pure per la messa in scena, per la scenografia, per l'ambientazione, ma qualche appunto a quest'edizione va fatta, non prima, però, di mettere in evidenza la conturbante voce del soprano che interpreta Carmen. Ripresa in un normale teatro ( forse mancano i teatri in Australia? )l'esito sarebbe stato più spettacolare. Costumi davvero belli, luci adeguate. Cantare con il microfono quasi in bocca non è certo gradevole. Ed allora la preannunciata critica negativa dove è? Eccola: manca il coro dei ragazzi, dei monelli, se vogliamo, di quei ragazzi che imitano i movimenti dei soldati al cambio della guardia. Scelta o errore nel montaggio? E sì, perché nel libretto illustrativo non appare nella scaletta questo brano. Dicevo scelta, ma da parte di chi? Le scelte, anche se inopportune, vanno sempre giustificate. Forse in Australia mancano le voci bianche? Oppure un errore nel montaggio. Qualcuno può aiutarmi a capire?

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings 24 April 2014
By A. Lupu - Published on Amazon.com

This is an outdoor production. It is set to be a great spectacle, with big fluorescent lights, fireworks and a quite big stage. From the reviews written in Australia, I gather that as a spectacle it was a success. The problem is that for a Blue-Ray to be watched on your TV, it looses most of that “big stage” appeal. The microphones used by the singers are quite disturbing when you take close-up shots. In addition, the sound doesn’t have the depth I am accustomed in other recordings. Creating the right sound for the audience is always a challenge in an open area, but it certainly doesn’t work in a recording. There are some interesting aspects of the production, which doesn’t include the spoken dialogues of the original Carmen. For this type of staging, it seems like an intelligent decision, it is very difficult to create intimate scenes in such a big and open stage, so avoiding dialogue makes sense. The choreography works very nice for big scenes with plenty of people on stage, but it is not very effective otherwise. The singers and the orchestra are good, although not incredible, and that may be in part due to the limitations of the stage and the sound system. There are better Carmen Blue-Rays than this one, although if you watched it life, this may be a good souvenir and reminder of what you saw and heard.
