Notes & Reviews:

'Carmen' is among the most popular operas for all the obvious reasons: great characters, a gripping story and fabulous music. But what set it on a pinnacle is an amazing combination of three factors: a sizzling gipsy heroine, great atmosphere and the prodigality of melodic invention - one great tune after another, at least a dozen of which are the staples of Madison Avenue and the animated cartoon.
