Videotaped live at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, England, this production of Bizet's classic opera plays strongly on the Spanish themes and heritage of the story, and it employs a wealth of Spanish talent, including director Nuria Espert, production designer Gerardo Vera, and choreographer Cristina Hoyos. Maria Ewing stars as the beautiful but dangerous temptress Carmen, while Luis Lima portrays Dan Jose, the man she leads astray.
