We just finished watching Carmen the other night. This is the 1984 version with Julia Migenes and Plácido Domingo, directed by Francesco Rosi, and filmed on locations in Spain. I recommend this version, though I sometimes found the use of locations and lip-syncing to be a bit distracting.

We are beginning to love opera. My girls think opera is great – they want to see more. Next might be Verdi’s La traviata. We’ll see.
