Another opera joins the dirty-overcoat brigademain
This is Carmen, currently at Opera Australia.
The role is sung by the French mezzo Clementine Margaine, reckoned to be one of the most seductive interpreters of the moment.
So why kit her out in a full-length overcoat?
Correction: It is Natalie Aroyan as Micaëla. The point still stands.
The director is John Bell, the designer Michael Scott-Mitchell.
The ticket-sales page bears no visual relation to the production.
