Notes and Editorial Reviews

If you’re going to start with one opera, make it Carmen. It’s full of memorable melodies, fascinating situations, and gripping drama. Karajan and his colleagues give a polished account that revels in the beauty and color of the score. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection If you’re going to start with one opera, make it Carmen.
