“Strongest by far is Helen Sherman in the title role. No dark Gypsy, but a peroxide blonde, sensuous and sassy, she controls her mezzo throughout the range, from rich chest-voice to fearless top registers. Crucially, she is a magnetic presence even when she is not singing or centrestage: at the first appearance of the toreador Escamillo (the suave Nicholas Lester), the fickle Carmen’s body language says it all: she smoulders.”
