Vesselina Kasarova as Carmen in Bratislava

Yesterday in the Slovak National opera was singing Vesselina Kasarova, a remerkable phenomenon on an opera sky, for sure. An amazing interpreter of baroque music, of Mozart’s and Donizetti’s operas… Her Carmen was very unusual, like it was a mix from Sextus, mad Azucena and Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix from the Harry Potter movies. So that are my asociations. I better do not talk about singing, but I’m wondering, what are the critics going to write.
