“What a fun, lively and effective production is Carmen-Vive la Liberté – and what a good performing edition of the score. I’ll bet smaller opera companies and colleges would enjoy this version. And I loved that they did it in the opera comique version, with updated dialogue- very smart! Diana Cantrelle sounded and looked great in the role. Opus Concert Theatre lined up an excellent cast, good use of the space, the chorus folk were clearly having a very good time, and very involved.” — Dr. T. Benjamin
