Daniel Barenboim conducting the Staatskapelle Berlin Orchester Stage Director: Martin Kušej. Director: Don Kent. Producers: EuroArts Music International, ZDF/ARTE North American Premiere: Sunday March 11, 2012 Running time: 201 minutes incl. 15 minute intermission Cast: Rolando Villazon (Don José;) Marina Domashenko (Carmen;) Adriane Queiroz (Micaela;) Alexander Vinogradov (Escamillo.) Bizet’s Carmen is reputed to be the most famous opera in the world. Maestro Daniel Barenboim presents his musical view on this classic opera, one of the most significant opera events of the decade. Marina Domashenko’s rich mezzo soprano voice makes her ideal for the title role in Carmen. After the premiere the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote about Rolando Villazon: “A perfect José, sung as he hasn’t been sung in a long time… This young Mexican tenor alone makes it worth seeing.” Der Tagesspiegel called Villazon, “A dream Tenor.”
