Notes and Editorial Reviews

The finest all-around Carmen on discs remains the Solti-led 1973 performance from Covent Garden on Opera d’Oro: Shirely Verrett, Placido Domingo, Te Kanawa, and José van Dam sing rings around almost all of the competition individually, and as a dramatic whole, the opera really works.
