Bizet’s iconic gypsy was the most celebrated role of the legendary Risë Stevens—and this dramatically compelling performance leaves no doubt that she was one of its greatest interpreters. Richard Tucker is Don José, the soldier whose love for Carmen destroys them both. Victoria de los Angeles gives an enchanting performance as the innocent Micaela, and Frank Guarrera is the magnetic matador Escamillo.
