An exhilarating Carmen from Glyndebourne. Director David McVicar describes Carmen as "the first ever musical", and in his new production, with Anne Sofie von Otter in the title role, Carmen is restored to the original Opera Comique as Bizet wrote it, Philippe Jordan makes his Glyndebourne debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Glyndebourne Chorus.

Filmed in High Definition.

"What great value...a veritable feast for the eye and ear...excellent extra features...222 minutes of high-class entertainment." (Classic FM - DVD Best Buy)

"In the grip of violent emotions, Anne Sofie von Otter paints a complete ‘Carmen’." (Los Angeles Times)
