From the Vienna State Opera: "Carmen" by Georges Bizet (1838-1875). Conductor: Andris Nelsons - Stage director: Franco Zeffirelli. Stealing the show of this "Carmen" production is Anna Netrebko as Micaela, who gives the role a strikingly authentic touch. The lead role is sung and acted with a panther-like grace by Bulgarian mezzo Nadia Krasteva. She and her equally dazzling fellow leads Massimo Giordano as Don José and Ildebrando D'Arcangelo as Escamillo infuse this revival of Franco Zeffirelli's 1978 production with drama and irrepressible life. Imparting his own personal stamp on the music is the young Latvian conductor Andris Nelsons, who leads the Orchestra of the Wiener Staatsoper with contagious passion and fresh, brisk tempi.
