radically underrated
23 September 2004 | by rgluchowskiSee all my reviews

Before all, my English is far too poor to write anything. But I can't believe my own eyes, seein' so PERFECT production with so PERFECT cast(marvelous Ramey, wonderful Baltsa, very good Carreras)with such low rating 3.4 !!!!!!! 3.4 ??????????????

Jesus Christ and God in heaven, one must be blind and totally deaf voting this way.

I want to say, that that Carmen (MET Carmen) is the BEST opera I've ever saw (and I saw hundreds of'em, I'm total opera freak)

I vote with all my heart 10

PS How, for God's sake, is possible to vote 1, 3 or even 6 for that production ? Please, write your comments, all you "wrongvoters"

PS 2 Sorry for my ghastly English
