"Portraying a voluptuous Carmen, contralto Alissa Anderson sang the “Habanera” with power and passion as she searched for Don José, soon after presenting a more reflective “Seguidilla.” - Michael Huebner


    "The smoldering Alissa Anderson breathed life into Carmen, a gypsy "hostess" giving her unquenchable affection for the right price. Anderson provided a bellowing voice with sensuality. Her skilled seductions lead to danger when a soldier becomes lost in Carmen's raw attraction." - David Edward Perry
