The Arizona Opera's production of Carmen was a hit with The Arizona Daily Star's Cathalena E. Burch according to her review she wrote after seeing the performance. She highlights everyone that contributed towards the production, including those who are not seen on stage.
“I have known the music of Bizet for a long time. I’ve never seen Carmen, ever. For me this is very exciting. The first time I will get to see a production will be from the best seat in the house, which is the podium.”
