Product Description


technical comment

  • New from the enterprising new DVD label FRA Musica, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, leads the period-instrument Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique and an all star cast topped by the amazing Anna Caterina Antonacci in a staging of Bizet's beloved opera Carmen that had critics raving. Antonacci's extraordinary vocal timbre and superb acting skills have enabled her to perform a vast and varied repertoire in the world's most important theatres. She made her Covent Garden debut in a new production of Carmen in 2008 with Antonio Pappano and recently performed a selection of Canteloube's Chants d'Auvergne at the BBC Proms. Probably the most Francophile of English conductors, John Eliot Gardiner returned to the Opéra Comique in Paris for this much-acclaimed production last year. It was broadcast live to fifty theatres in France and Switzerland and also recorded for television. This followed an exciting collaboration that began with Chabrier's opera bouffe L'Etoile, which opened the new theatre at the Opéra Comique in December 2007. DVD bonuses include the return to the Opéra comique and interviews with Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Jérôme Deschamps & Agnès Terrier.
