Bizet
Carmen

The glamorous Gladys Swarthout seemed destined to play Bizet’s enticing gypsy. An exceptionally beautiful woman, she possessed a rich contralto voice that perfectly captured Carmen’s personality—caressing, beguiling, and demolishing all defenses against her will. Charles Kullman is a winning Don Jose and the young Leonard Warren sings a virile Escamillo. Licia Albanese gives an unusually passionate and three-dimensional portrayal of Micaëla.
