With conductor Kristiina Poska on the podium, this gala performance of Uwe Eric Laufenberg's "Carmen" features three international stars: sought-after Russian baritone Alexey Markov as Escamillo, Brandon Jovanovich as Don José and Annalisa Stroppa in the lead role. The critics raved about her Carmen at Opéra-Théâtre de Limoges: »As beautiful as Pénélope Cruz, with a fruity vocal timbre and electrifying stage presence".
