Bizet Carmen Antonacci/Kaufmann 0743313
In this production, conducted by Antonio Pappano and directed by Francesca Zambello, very little goes wrong. Antonacci's uncanny performance makes her the Carmen of her generation . . . Watch her at the end of Jonas Kaufmann's "La fleur que tu m'avais jetée": her "Non, tu ne m'aimes pas!" nearly freezes the blood.
