Bizet's Carmen has long been one of the most popular of all operas but don’t worry if you have seen it before: this Carmen, directed by Barrie Kosky, is quite unlike anything you or indeed anyone els
All this giggle-making stuff presents a major difficulty for the singers: how to portray their characters seriously.
This Carmen lasts for three-and-a-half hours and feels as long as that after the first 20 minutes.
Goryachova and her co-star Franceso Meli, playing Don José, present an unconvincing relationship sorely lacking in lust and sexual chemistry.
Half an hour in, you start to see the same patterns used repeatedly.
