Notes & Reviews:
Georges Bizet's "Carmen", one of the world's most beloved operas and a staple of the operatic since its premiere a mere three months before the composer's death in June, 1875 was staged at the world-famous Arena di Verona in June, 2014 in an opulent production directed by the flamboyant Franco Zeffirelli and filmed in High Definition. The cast is an international lineup of excellent singers: Russian mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Semenchuk ("This gorgeous mezzo-soprano is gifted with an amazing voice... captivating timbre and good pronunciation... - Operaclick), soprano Irina Lungu ([her] voice has the brightness you associate with most coloraturas, but also bloom and warmth, which are more unusual qualities... " - New York Times), tenor Carlo Ventre ("I regard Ventre as one of the finest spinto tenors singing today." - Opera Warhorses) and baritone Carlos Álvarez (... ample, virile voice... " - Opera News). Conductor Henrik Nánási leads the Arena di Verona Orchestra and Chorus.Notes & Reviews:
