Carmen on the Big Screen

On Tuesday 8 June, Bizet’s Carmen was broadcast live from the Royal Opera House on Dover’s Big Screen in the Market Square, as part of BP Summer Big Screens 2010 a nationwide event, which sees 29 alfresco opera and ballet screenings taking place at 22 venues across the UK. It wasn’t a particularly warm night, but the passion of the opera and this performance kept us all there; Maija Kovalevska in the role of Michaela was absolutely fantastic and Bryan Hymel as Don José was really believable in the final act.
