New York Times - 09/20/1984
"...The definitive screen adaptation....A full-scale unembarrassed screen opera..."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2011
"[I]t often works brilliantly, thanks largely to Julia Migenes's sweaty, sultry Carmen, a more physically convincing incarnation of whom it is hard to imagine."

Description by OLDIES.com:

All the passion and spectacle of Bizet's Carmen comes to life in this dazzling screen opera starring Placido Domingo and Julia Migenes-Johnson. In 19th century Seville, the lusty, tempestuous Carmen (Migenes-Johnson) seduces a naive Army corporal, Don Jose (Domingo), newly assigned to the village fortress. Jose abandons his career, his fiancee and even his dying mother for the love of this sultry gypsy. But soon she spurns him in favor of a toreador, Escamillo (Ruggero Raimondi). Crazed with jealousy, Jose begs Carmen to return to him, but her taunting declaration of independence results in tragedy. Shot entirely on location in Andalusia Spain, Bizet's Carmen has been hailed as the definitive version of this classic opera. Superbly directed by Francesco Rosi (Illustrious Corpses).

Product Description:

A fine screen adaptation of Bizet's popular opera. Lorin Maazel conducts the French National Orchestra and Chorus and the French Radio Chorus. Sung in French.
