"This staging lends itself specially well to film in many ways. It’s as colourful as the music ... Rice’s dark good looks make her a good choice for the part. Her singing is precise and attractive ... Argiris’s Escamillo is much deeper than the usual flashy image...Kovalevska’s Micaëla on the other hand was superb from beginning to end." (Opera Today)

"Looking radiant and singing superbly, [Kovalevska] brought great depth and passion to the role with a faultless performance." (The Daily Express)

"... an earthily alluring Carmen from Christine Rice." (The Guardian)
