BBC produces 2-minute Carmen. Er, why?main
From the press release:
The BBC has produced a mini version of Bizet’s famous opera Carmen as part of the Get Playing music making campaign.
The short video condenses the doomed love story into a playful 120 seconds narrated by BBC Radio 6 Music’s Breakfast Show presenter, Shaun Keaveny.
Watch it here.
Then ask yourself, what’s the point? Where’s the added value?
Will this DJ-chatty skit increase by one iota the urge in anyone to go and see a live Carmen?
