"Agnes Baltsa and José Carreras are a smouldering couple in this passionate account of Carmen conducted by James Levine in the famed MET production. Others in the equally compelling cast include Leona Mitchell as Micaëla and Samuel Ramey as Escamillo.
***** "The best version of Carmen I have seen"…
"The singing was great, the orchestra was even greater, and the costumes and sets provided plenty of eye candy. Samuel Ramey, as Escamillo, performs the best toreador song I have ever heard, and gets a well-deserved thunderous ovation for it." Amazon reviews
