Wow, please let me know how to get one from anyone who has it.
My favorite movie is Carlos Saura's CARMEN -- I once saw an article (before I learned to read words) and was intrigued with the many pictures it displayed of this creature -- in the USA we did not see too many like characters walking around, and I wasn't sure if this was a person or a cow or a magical creature -- through my life, of course, I heard references to this Carmen -- but I always delayed finding out the REAL particulars and the story of the opera (so I could cling to my many imaginings about who or what this "dolled up" person really was and what she might be a symbol of) I took the plunge at a local art film house in the mid-80's by seeing the Saura "Carmen" -- I was not totally disappointed with her actuality in the literary sense, but I had more Disney-esquire hopes.
Still, I have followed productions of Carmen. I've ordered the transcripts, studied the some of the history, read about Bizet, etc.
SO OF COURSE -- after finding this production (I put in "Christina Hoyos" to search IMDb) I'm all excited. I'm not a stalker personality, lol, but I'll have to follow Boitano and Witt online and see if they'll come to this area -- I could write to them and ask them to make me a copy, I guess, and perhaps even meet them. Sounds like a good idea to me, anyway.
I was surprised to have enjoyed the CATS on DVD so much -- this London production stars Michael Gruber, a fellow from Ohio who was, at age 14 years, thought to be the second ranking diver in the world. When his year came for Olympic competition, somehow he missed the cut and did not get on the USA team. As a result, he attended college and we can see him on this DVD in CATS.
Are high profile sports people (in this, skaters) always as good on the stage as Gruber is ? I'll bet the people involved in this Emmy-winning show made an A-1 "Carmen" ! I really want to see it, no matter what.
And I hope we all have the chance someday to see Cristina Hoyos, Katarina Witt, and Brian Boitano ON A DVD -- CARMEN ON ICE ! ! !
My email is JERTOONS@AOL.COM -- and my address is : Jerry Snyder, 92 Medinah Drive, Reading, PA, 19607, USA -- anybody with any knowledge of how to get a viewable copy, do please contact me -- I know I'll have this on my mind until I've seen it.
Best wishes to all, Jerry
