Acclaim for the Met's new Carmen: 'The production provides an ideal context for Garanča's nuanced, sexy and cagey unerring feel for the nuance and subtext of a phrase, and alluring sensuality. Don José remains one of Alagna's strongest roles... an involving blend of intensity and refinement. I have never seen the final scene executed with such stunning realism,  a dangerous mingling of sex, rebellion and violence: the  very essence of Carmen ... The singers benefited immensely from the work of conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin'.
