Georges Bizet's famous opera is performed live at London's Earl's Court, with Jacques Delacote conducting the National Philharmonic Orchestra and the Ambrosian Opera Chorus. Don José is a guard who begins an affair with the tempestuous Carmen (Maria Ewing). He is imprisoned and loses his job, then flees with her to the mountains. When the relationship starts to break down José refuses to acknowledge it, and will not leave even when he gets news that his mother is dying. Carmen meanwhile has taken up with the bullfighter Escamillo.

I particularly enjoyed the part of Don Jose, his facial expressions clearly shows rage emotions he is feeling .
Maria Ewing is on top of her game, she sings with such passion.
