Bizet
Carmen

For a generation of operagoers, there was only one Carmen: Risë Stevens. Her beguiling, smoky voice enticed listeners into Carmen’s sensual world, where gypsies smuggled contraband, then danced with soldiers and flirted with matadors. Richard Tucker is Don José, the man Carmen ruins. This broadcast captures the excitement of the then-new production by the great theatrical director Tyron Guthrie. Conducted by the legendary Fritz Reiner.
