Opera in Cinema: Royal Opera House's "Carmen"

Anna Caterina Antonacci is "mesmerizing" and Jonas Kaufmann is "the finest Jose to be heard for ages," in Carmen. (Tim Ashley, The Guardian) This Royal Opera production by director Francesca Zambello is a darkly passionate and sumptuously exotic 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.
