"This was a gutsy performance, Yvonne Fontane, who also directed, stalked throught the part in a serious attempt to find what this woman is about.  Carmen uses the only weapon she has in a man’s world…

Gianluca Paganelli’s Jose has a voice close to the real thing…. Natasha Day’s Micaela had real radiance and a homespun strength of character.  Njabulo Madlala was a masculine Escamillo and Nicholas Legoux an effectively louring Zuniga".
