    So boring. I thought carmen was impossible to ruin but Kosky manages it. Emotionally dead, interminably long, and no relationship between the music and the rest of the production. I felt sorry for the musicians.

    Great singing but the worst production I have ever seen!
    Why such a great Opera House employs producers and directors such as these I really cannot understand .I wonder if it is because they cannot compete with the standards set in the past

    Meistersinger, Saul, Carmen this has been a glorious year for productions directed by Barry Kovsky. His Carmen is one of the most intelligent, original and theatrically thrilling performances I have ever had the privilege to attend. Thank you ROH for giving us the opportunity to witness such a world class director at the height of his game, please can we have more Barry Kovsky productions if you can persuade him away from Komische Oper, Glyndebourne and Bayreuth.
