Bizet
Carmen

Rosa Ponselle is one of the Met’s legendary singers whose mere name conjures greatness. This rare example of Ponselle, live on the Met stage in an actual performance, shows why. Her dark, velvety voice is perfectly suited to the character of Carmen: lightly flirtatious one moment, smoldering with passion the next. This is a shattering portrayal of one of the most gripping roles in opera. Once heard, you’ll never experience Carmen the same way again.
