Carmen is my first opera of 2010! It was supposed to be Angela Gheorghiu in the title role. But she dropped out for personal reasons (her soon to be ex is singing Don José). I say who cares anyway? We've got Elīna Garanča instead!
Conductor: Yannick Nézet-Séguin
Carmen: Elina Garanca
Micaela: Barbara Frittoli
Don José: Roberto Alagna
Escamillo: Mariusz Kwiecien
