PLACIDO DOMINGO AS DON JOSE
Bizet's opera comique is one of the most popular in the repertoire. It is set in Seville where the beautiful gypsy Carmen woos an inexperienced soldier Don Jose. She leads him to reject his former love, mutiny against his superior and join a gang of smugglers. His jealousy when she then turns to the bullfighter Escamillo leads him to murder Carmen. Julia Migenes sings Carmen with Placido Domingo as Don Jose with the Orchestre National de France conducted by Lorin Maazel.
