Product Description


Legendary opera star Geraldine Farrar is incandescent as Carmen in this early adaptation of Mérimée's tragedy, directed by Cecil B. DeMille. Carmen also stars Wallace Reid as Don José. This lavishly restored edition was made from DeMille's personal print of the film, and color tinted according to the specifications in the original shooting script. The soundtrack features a recreation of Hugo Riesenfeld's score for the film's 1915 premiere, performed by the London Philharmonic and operatic soloists under the direction of musicologist and conductor Gillian B. Anderson. As a bonus, Farrar is heard in 1914-1915 Victor recordings of arias from Carmen against a video montage of stills and scenes from the movie.
