Performers, Cast and Crew:
Bizet's tumultuous opera CARMEN is one of the most loved and widely known of all time. The story of a seductive gypsy and her emotional struggle with a man, the opera nearly overflows with passion, drama, and lust. Performed here at London's premier theatre, Earl's Court, the opera stars major talents Maria Ewing, Jacques Trussel, Miriam Gauci, and Alain Fondart. The opulence of the production and the impassioned performances of the singers received great critical acclaim, and is captured beautifully on video.
