Ewing and company will seduce you in this marvelous Covent Garden production!
13 August 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The nuanced, passionate portrayal by the lithe Maria Ewing of the tempestuous, teasing and seductive gypsy girl, Carmen, makes this production an enjoyable treat! Barefoot for most of the play, with the occasional insouciant cigarette between her lips or her fingers, Ewing successfully brings her character to vivid life. Luis Lima's Don Jose is one heck of a troubled, perplexed and ultimately, desperate lover. Nuria Espert's tone-perfect direction, Gerardo Vera's imposing and realistic sets, Franca Squarciapino's lovely and tasteful costumes, Barrie Gavin's astute camera work and editing, together with Bizet's beautiful music and the cast's compelling vocal and dramatic performances all contribute to this live recording's supremacy over any other filmed version.
