Carmen -- Today's listener suggestion comes from my friend Anna Mack. She appears regularly with the Grand Rapids Opera Chorus and thought that I could use a little more opera in my life. To that end she asked that I make a collage using selections from Carmen.
Astute listeners will recall that I am not a fan of opera. While listening to a recording of Carmen to prepare for this piece I recalled another recording of the same material. It comes from a source I've been looking for an excuse to use for a while.
Enjoy Homer and Bart's trip to the opera.
