For this new edition of Carmen, artist Davide Pizzigoni once again creates a stage for the imagination with richly allusive illustrations that capture the exotic spirit of the Spanish setting. J. D. McClatchy's fluid and rhythmic translation of the libretto allows the listener full appreciation of Bizet's swift and lustrous score as it is exquisitely performed in this 1950 recording of Andr Cluytens conducting the Orchestre du Thtre del'Opra-Comique. A truly symphonic experience of song, poetry, and art, Carmen is the perfect gift for any opera fan.
