Notes & Reviews:

The First Complete Opera on 3D Blu-Ray!

Passion, jealousy and betrayal take center stage at London's Royal Opera House in a spectacular production of the world's most popular opera. Bizet's Carmen is packed with some of the best-loved and memorable music in all of opera. In this characteristically vivid and vibrant stage production by Francesca Zambello, beautifully filmed in 3D by Julian Napier, Seville is brought to life with ranks of soldiers, crowds of peasants, gypsies and bullfighters - as well as a magnificent horse, a donkey and even some chickens! This spectacular RealD and Royal Opera House production features a supremely talented cast, gripping drama and Bizet's energetic and passionate score. It is truly a musical event to remember! Carmen in 3D was premiered at the Santa Barbara Film Festival in February 2011, and this recording marks the world's first complete opera on 3D Blu-ray.


Carmen in 3D was shot using state-of-the-art 3D cameras during live performances at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. This was a first of its kind 3D production utilizing the same equipment used for many of today's blockbuster 3D feature films and live 3D sporting events

- Do I need a 3D TV and 3D Blu-ray player to watch this disc? Yes, you will need a 3D compatible TV and a 3D compatible Blu-ray player.

- Will I have to wear 3D glasses? Yes, the technology used to produce this recording does require the use of the3D glasses that were supplied with your 3D TV (3D glasses are not supplied with this disc).

Audiophile Audition
This may not be your father's CoppTlia, but there is still much to delight the eye and ear here. Fortunately, both audio and video are top-notch, the camerawork subtle enough to capture the emotions on display without the illusion-killing close-ups that can mar such a production.

Well worth watching ... wonderment and terrific dancing ... this is one that I will be returning to with anticipation and pleasure.
