Director David McVicar describes Carmen as "the first ever musical," and his new production, with Anne Sofie von Otter in the title role, restores the original opéra comique as Bizet wrote it, stripping away subsequent re-workings which turned it into a grand opera. Philippe Jordan makes his Glyndebourne debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Glyndebourne Chorus and a cast that includes Marcus Haddock, Laurent Naouri and Lisa Milne.
