A realist showcase for the principal's signature role
28 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

A fine production of one of opera's greatest works. Peter Hall's outing is well-pitched between realism and necessary staginess. The modest (old) Glyndebourne stage is well used to show pull the soap-scale drama from the heart of the grand romantic tragedy.

Maria Ewing is one of the great Carmens, a smouldering melange of lust, beauty, insecurity and (where others trip up) a compelling Latin disdain. In all this her acting is unmannered. In addition she sings with outward abandon and fantastic inward control. I prefer the Covent Garden production of 1989 but its marginal. There's an abandon on stage which might be curtailed under more opulent circumstances. 5/10
