About this item

Based on the idea that each singer brings her own vision to the role of Carmen in Bizet's opera of the same name, Villamil shows how their portrayals evolved and changed--musically, stylistically, vocally, dramatically, and above all interpretively--from generation to generation and country to country. She also examines how historic events, cultural drifts, and societal upheavals as well as changing vocal styles and performance practices impacted their portrayals. But ultimately, she says, it is the individual singers that matter: their personalities,temperaments, physical and vocal makeups, minds and sensibilities, and above all their personal connection with the Gypsy Carmen.
