Anna Caterina Antonacci is "mesmerizing" and Jonas Kaurfmann is "the finest Jose to be heard for ages," according to Tim Ashley of The Guardian. From the opening bars of the swashbuckling overture to its earth-shattering denouement, Zambello's "Carmen" is surely as vital now as it was in 19th-century France. This Royal Opera production by director Francesca Zambell is a darkly passionate and sumptuously erotic reading of one of the world's favorite operas. Under the baton of Music Director Antonio Pappano, Bizet's irresistible score drives the tragedy forward in this powerful landmark staging of a musical masterpiece.
