Towards the end of Callas's career, there were many rumors that she was planning to perform Carmen on stage. This was never to be, but Carmen became her penultimate complete recording of an opera - and her only complete recording of a French opera.

With Georges Prêtre, one of her favored conductors and the
ever-stylish, Nicolai Gedda as her Don José, she captured every facet of the role.

As Gramophone said when the set was first released:
“Hers is a Carmen to haunt you.”
 

History

One of the most popular operas of all time, Georges Bizet’s Carmen (1875) tells the story of a beautiful and passionate gypsy whose love affair with an officer ends in tragedy. The score boasts several of opera’s greatest hits, including Carmen’s Habanera and the Toreador Song.
