You must see Samuel Ramey perform the "Toreador Song"
1 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Samuel Ramey's performance of the "Toreador Song" is so phenomenal, I have to go back and play that part of the opera at least two more times every time I watch the video. The high note that hits in this area must be heard to be believed and Ramey's power is unparalleled by any bass past or present.

However, I thought Jose Carreras was below par due to perceptible pitch problems throughout the opera.

Agnes Baltsa is better than your average Carmen and sang rather well.

Leona Mitchell is also rather good in her portrayal of Micaela and the supporting cast did a good job in acting and singing their roles.
