"A 'Carmen' dominated by emotionality", wrote the press about this
unforgettable interpretation of Georges Bizet's masterpiece from
Barcelona's Gran Teatre del Liceu with an outstanding quartet of lead
vocalists and a visually stimulating staging by Calixto Bieito. Conducted
by Marc Piollet, the production features Béatrice Uria-Monzon as "a
splendid and sensual" (elPeriódico) Carmen, Roberto Alagna as Don
José, Marina Poplavskaya as Micaela and Erwin Schrott as Escamillo.
Stage director Calixto Bieito conjures up a sensual, realistic atmosphere
with sparse but powerfully symbolic props.
