FROM THE PRESS

The Met’s Carmen is a gripping and brilliant production New York Times
A production that was remarkable for its theatrical clear-sightedness. Wall Street Journal
Eyre’s buildup to that moment is one of the most thrilling operatic deaths we’ve seen. Though Carmen is categorized as an opera comique, there is very little comedy in this version of Seville, where women are less sirens and more middle-management: seducing the townsmen, but at the mercy of the male bandits. In the latest production, this Carmen is a white-knuckled, edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting ride. And in the murder of the title character, there’s payoff in spades.” Time Out New York
