Bizet meant it to be a comedy thus its opening in the Paris Comic-Opera! His death soon after the opening is, in a way, also comedic, je pense!

I've always enjoyed watching artists take a chance. Setting "Carmen" in modern day South Africa is a pretty big chance and, for the most part, Dornford-May manages to pull it off. The music is wonderful and the singing is superb. Unfortunately it doesn't manage to capture the sensuality and passion of the opera and instead we are left watching a very admirable amateur production with a few clever twists.
