Carmen & the Guiraud recitatives

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Administrator @ 5:54 pm

The Metropolitan Opera’s new Carmen is using the recitatives composed by Guiraud instead of spoken dialogue, reports Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times.

The recording is scheduled for release on November 17, 2009, at amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, amazon.ca, and amazon.de.
