Your Reaction: What did you think of The Royal Opera's Carmen 2019?
Audience and press reviews of Bizet's classic opera, directed by Barrie Kosky.
Spectacular (and very different) #ROHcarmen - dramatic, sensual and almost burlesque. Julia Jones is superb! Michaela @ailynperezsop singing is gorgeous, pure and sublime.@lucapisaroni is a sumptuous Escamillo. Anaik Morel & Brian Hymel were great. @ROHchorus were to die for pic.twitter.com/gbQGyLCQtT— Achyuta Nori #FBPE (@AchyutaNori) June 22, 2019
It's five red hot stars from me for Carmen @RoyalOperaHouse. It's big, it's brassy, and it's perfect for first-timers (take the teens). Thanks @lululoveslondon for inviting me to be your opera buddy today. | #opera #london #ROHcarmen pic.twitter.com/pQmU29cugi— Diary of a Londoness (@ScarlettRoitman) June 22, 2019
To @RoyalOperaHouse for #ROHcarmen - fab voices, esp @BRYANHYMEL & @ailynperezsop. Orch top notch under Julia Jones. But OMG WTF with the ‘design’ ?! How to kill a production stone dead with a big non-idea. Total disaster. Bizet must be turning in his urn. Eyes closed to enjoy.☠️— Jonathan Izard (@jonathanizard) June 24, 2019
