ELĪNA GARANČA is Carmen at Wiener Staatsoper.

ELĪNA GARANČA is Carmen at Wiener Staatsoper.

We were all waiting for it. Elīna Garanča dresses once more the amazing role of Carmen of Bizet at the Wiener Staatsoper for a couple of dates. A role that was made for her. When Georges Bizet wrote and revealed Carmen in 1875, he would not imagine that one day a Blond singer would invest the role of Carmen. Nevertheless the role of Carmen is a passionate role and Ms Garanča has it. The performance is not only about the singing, but also about the tremendous sensual energy that the character of Carmen emanates. The first Carmen was Célestine Galli-Marié. She was known for her personality, her passion for Opera and her youth. She settled the tone for Carmen. The first triumph for Carmen happened in Wien in 1875, which is a great story when you know that 138 years after, Wien is still loyal to Bizet’s Opera. Photo: Félix Nadar…
