On Saturday the 16th I went to the Union Square theater to hear and see the Metropolitan Opera matinee performance of the new updated version of Bizet's Carmen directed by Richard Eyre staring the gorgeous, glamorous, alluring and brilliantly voiced mezzo Elena Garanca . It was a performance to be cherished and remembered. Garanca she of gorgeous voice is also a wonderful actress. The advantage of seeing the performance on the screen is that you can see the subtle, expressions that further illuminate the character.
Peter Gelb is to be applauded for bringing us new and exciting vocal and directorial talent in new and exciting productions. Whenever possible I recommend that you try an opera performance this way. Incidentally the price for the ticket is only $20.00.........great don't you think?
Be well....do good work....keep in touch....
