"ATREAT FOR THE EYES - AND A SENSATION FOR THE EARS"
Mail on Sunday
Two of the leading figures in opera today, PLACIDO DOMINGO and JULIA MIGENES-JOHNSON, star in this sumptuous and true interpretation of Bizet's Carmen. The ingredients of this romantic opera are a film-maker's dream: a torrid love story, a tempestuous score, set against a backdrop of glorious Spanish sunshine. FRANCESCO ROSI had added a masterful dimension to authentic Andalusian dance to a production graced by a cast of stars. If you know Carmen already, you will find this film adaptation, with it's superb Hi-Fi soundtrack, everything you expected and more. If you have yet to experience the magic of opera, this could not be a better introduction.
