Blanche Thebom is Princess Eboli and future superstar Martina Arroyo is heard in her Met debut role as the Celestial Voice

41 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the scintillating direction of James Levine, the Met's orchestra and chorus add more than a dash of seasoning to Bizet's colorful score. A brilliant cast makes this popular work seem utterly fresh. Agnes Baltsa is riveting as Carmen, the impetuous gypsy woman determined to always be her own woman--while having any man she desires. José Carreras is heartbreaking as Don José, the man who falls into her snare, makes the mistake of loving her, and cannot stand to lose her to the strutting matador, Escamillo (Samuel Ramey)
